Amy Huberman appeared on The Late Late Show last night to chat about RTE drama Striking Out.

The talented actress sat down with Ryan, alongside co-star Maria Kennedy, where the two Irish women discussed the #MeToo movement that is helping to combat sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.

Maria, who plays in the hit show, revealed her thoughts on the campaign, in which she said “people get to decide about their boundaries and about their own bodies.”

“It’s fear as well,” Amy told host Ryan Tubridy.

“Fear of not being believed and not being supported.

“As a movement in general, there can’t be a blanket thing, it doesn’t work like that.

“But I think when you take the essence of what we’re talking about, it can only be seen as a positive thing when it is encouraging and supporting people to tell their stories.

“If it’s subjected to them, and their boundaries and what they feel is wrong then that needs to be heard.

“And it’s great that their is a platform for them to be heard.”
