How I still catch up with my Glenroe family

I still meet my Glenroe family as loads of them work around RTE.

Some of them are in Fair City so I see them a lot, plus Mary McEvoy (see the picture of the two of us on Glenroe, right) does interviews for the Today Show so I see her all the time.

I often meet her at interviews with movie stars, or at screenings and junkets, I always say 'Hi mammy' to her.

I actually bumped into Mick Lally's son Darach recently and it was so lovely to speak to him.

I wouldn't have known him but he looks exactly like Mick.

We had a great laugh for about half an hour and it was lovely to chat to him.

I was in Glenroe for years until I was 13 but I don't think I'd go back to acting.

I'm loving presenting TwoTube on RTE2 and interviewing stars and musicians.

I'm having an absolute ball and I've met some of my heroes through this job - I've met Jim Carey, Jennifer Aniston, Harrison Ford as well as some incredible musicians like Slash.

Next week I'm jetting to London to meet Will Smith and I'm also going to London Fashion Week as well.
