Deception is very different from Love/Hate - but I've had some great feedback

THE bad weather and snow hit us near our home in Manchester -- but overall it's been a good week as I'm getting lots of good comments from people about TV3 drama Deception.

I have to say I haven't seen any negative feedback about Deception -- but I don't read a lot of what is said about it.

I try not to focus on the negative -- but I don't think it is fair to compare Deception to RTE's Love/Hate.

Deception is only new and must find its own way.

The storylines are completely different, as is the way the shows are made.

Deception is only just starting out, so people are criticising it too early.

At the end of the day, this is acting and that's the nature of the beast. It is tough for any new show starting out.

I think it takes a few episodes to get into things.

But it's finding its way now and people are starting to relax into it more and enjoy the storylines and the characters a lot more.

I think the drama is promoting Ireland and the acting talent we have.

A lot of the issues in the show are also true to life right now and many people can really relate to it.

It was nice to play such a different character and working in Galway was definitely a change of scenery.

The tweets I have been getting have been amazing and there has been a lot of good comments from people.

The unfortunate thing is that I haven't seen the last two episodes over here in Manchester.

My mum Maureen has been recording it for me so I will be able to catch up with it when I go home in a few weeks.

It's a very busy time for me right now but it is fantastic and life is great. My baby son Hunter is nine months old now -- he's a really lively baby, full of energy.

And I have another little baby due at the start of May, so I have a lot of plans.

Publicity for Deception aside, I'm concentrating on being a mum to Hunter.

I'm also helping out my fiance Steve Davies with his financial claims business Stanton Fisher, which we have just launched in Ireland.

On Tuesday I had a successful meeting with my new management in the UK, David Daly Management.

I am already represented in Ireland by Red Carpet so it's great to have an agent in the UK.
