Sorcha to head Stateside with new short film

Fair City star Sorcha Furlong (inset) is jetting off to the States as her production company has been chosen to show one of their films at the San Francisco Film Festival.

The mum-of-one runs Smart Blonde Productions with Elaine Hearty and former Fair City co-stars Caroline Grace Cassidy and Sarah Flood.

"We've made three short films in the last year and they've done really well," she said.

"We've been at the Galway Film Fleadh and we're heading to the Underground Short Film Festival in Cork and then we're off to San Francisco.

"We're really busy which is amazing," she continued.

"All the girls in the group have their own day jobs as well so it's amazing to experience such success with the production company as well.

"We're going to have a great girly trip to San Francisco now at the end of the month," she said.

Not content to be acting for them already, Sorcha's production company is also pitching content to RTE.

"We've also written for Storyland on RTE so we're waiting to hear if they're going to commission it but we're getting good vibes from them so fingers crossed."


Despite being so busy with her multiple jobs, Sorcha says she still manages to fit in her beloved workouts.

"I have an amazing trainer who works me really hard but I love doing TRX so it's not so bad.

"I make sure to work out really early every morning.

"I'm so busy with the school run, Fair City and our production company that it's the only time I can fit it in.

"My favourite part is the acrobatic exercises, it's very cirque du soleil," she added.
