She started off as a mild-mannered receptionist playing Daisy in The Clinic, but Amy Huberman’s latest role sees her fighting off baddies in her first ever fight scene.
The popular actress has revealed she will be starring in an upcoming Irish action flick, and won’t be taking a backseat as the damsel in distress. Nope, Amy is going to be getting stuck in for the fast-paced movie and admitted she’s having a ball kicking some ass!
VIP got chatting to the 36-year-old today at the launch of the third Bord Gais Energy Student Theatre Awards, which the mum of two will be judging later this year. And there were some eyebrows raised when she divulged her involvement with the upcoming film, which currently has a working title – ‘The Fixer’.
“I don’t know if I’m meant to say much about it. It’s an Irish co-production – there’s people coming from other lands too,” she joked. “I have one fight scene, which I’m filming tomorrow. I’ve never done one before, and it’s choreographed so we’ll see how it goes.
“I’m fighting a baddie! That’s all I can say. It’s a fella, so I’ll have to look like I can really fight. I’m a goodie. I didn’t have to train because I’ve got a stunt double.”
She added: “Brian’s been laughing about the whole thing. I just hope I don’t break my legs! But no, I know the stunt team so it’ll be great fun.”
Amy said she’s loving filming again after giving birth to son Billy earlier this year, her second child after 2-year-old daughter Sadie. And she admitted that watching the Rugby World Cup is far less stressful this year, now that husband Brian O’Driscoll won’t be taking part for the first time.
“Brian is working at it for ITV commentary so he’s still away for all the games,” she laughed. “It’s very exciting and it was a great first game. I watch them at home now and can enjoy them as an Irish person and a fan of the team without all the different layers of worry – it’s the most relaxing World Cup I’ve known!”
