Loved-up Elva staying in Ireland for now
She's an acting star fast on the rise but loved-up actress Elva Trill won't be moving away from home just yet.
While the bright lights of London are tempting the Red Rock actress (24) to up sticks and cross the water, Elva is happy to stay on Irish soil where her boyfriend of four years James Murphy is based.
Although she might not be moving away any time soon, the Sligo native - who is on the books of the same Irish acting agent as Hollywood stars Jack Reynor and Saoirse Ronan - is keen to make a name for herself across the pond.
"I'm in talks with UK agents at the minute and I'm thinking that now might be the right time to get one," she said.
"I'm in good hands over here with McFarlane-Chard but it would be nice to have a base there too," Elva told the Diary.
The young screen star, who is appearing alongside Alison Doody in the upcoming flick Brother, previously lived in London and admitted the cost of living is putting her off moving again.
"There's definitely some things I would like to accomplish in the next year," she said.
"I don't know about relocating though.
"It's so expensive to live over there and it's close enough that it's easy enough to commute.
"I think we'll have to wait for a big blockbuster before I move over there again," she joked.
