10 minutes with…Fair City star Colleen Keogh

Colleen Keogh may be one of the more recent stars of Fair City, but did you know the actress is not actually from Dublin but rather from Scotland?

Yes, this was just one of the few things we learned about the soap star, who plays Anna Mac Shane on the hit show when we caught up with her for a quick chat.

What were you doing last night?

I went for a run, then looked over lines because I’m filming at the moment. After that, I did a bit of reading before calling it a night. I wish I could say something more exciting but I’m not very wild. 

What’s on your tv series link? 

I’m loving Barry at the moment. It’s hilarious and so well written. 

What’s your takeaway of choice? 

Chips cheese and garlic sauce. Every single time. 

Who’s your broadcasting hero?

Sir David Attenborough. He’s the first person that came to my mind so maybe he’s my hero, not necessarily my broadcasting hero. 

What’s your guilty pleasure? 

Heartbreaking romance movies. I’m such a hopeless romantic. I know I’ll cry my eyes out but I still love putting myself through it all. I’ve probably seen The Notebook a hundred times and still cry as hard as I did the first time.

Is there a question you hate being asked?

Not really – I’m quite an open book. Ask me a few more questions and we’ll see if we stumble across anything.

What’s been your most embarrassing moment on air or in public? 

I think it’s more likely that something I’ve done has embarrassed the person I’m with. I’ll probably write a book one day, I’ve got a collection of tales that I should be mortified about but I see the funny side to most of them. 

Is there a motto or piece of advice that you live by?

The present moment is all that exists.  I try to live by that, it’s challenging at times but not getting too worried or fixated on an outcome in the future is pointless to me. What will be, will be.

Tell us a secret about yourself. 

I used to own 11 pet rats. It’s not a secret but probably a lot of people don’t know that about me.

What’s been your proudest moment so far?

Climbing Kilimanjaro is probably one of my proudest moments. The feeling is on par to how I felt finishing my first marathon. So can I say both?
