OSCAR-winning actress Brenda Fricker has revealed that she doesn't know where her late husband is buried and has no desire to know where his final resting spot is.

Fricker revealed that she could not attend the funeral of her ex-husband Barry Davies in 1990 because she was filming a series in Australia and her contract did not permit her to fly home.

"I was in Australia and I was doing a very tough series called the Brides of Christ.

Hysterical

"While there I got a phone call to say that he was dead. I went a bit mad and hysterical and started packing my bags.

"They wouldn't let me home for the funeral as I was his ex-wife and the contract was binding. I don't know where he is buried and I don't want to know where he is," she told Miriam O'Callaghan on RTE's Sunday with Miriam show.

"I haven't got that far in the question. "You have to move something aside even though your heart is broken into small pieces. Maybe I just can't move away from that," she said.
