Jenn Murray: Episode 113

14Nov

Right now Belfast born actress Jenn Murray is appearing on the big screen in Brooklyn and she is currently in the thick of filming the prequel to Harry Potter yet she managed to find time to sit down with Jarlath in London for a chat this week. Jenn discusses how she landed the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them role, how the job of an actor is much more than just auditioning and acting, how she handled the challenge of playing the lead role in Dorothy Mills a film in which her character had seven personalities and the performance that earned her an IFTA nomination. We also hear about the Jim Sheridan film which sparked her passion for acting.

Jenn speaks about the trials and tribulations of drama school, how she strengthened her character, learned to cope with rejection and chose to abandon social networks while also explaining her theory that we can use desire to override fear.
