An Irishman Abroad

Amy Huberman: Episode 163

October 29, 2016

In perhaps her most open and honest interview to date, actress/writer/designer Amy Huberman speaks to Jarlath about her unusual up-bringing (8:00) and how constant rejection has paved the way for her success (13:00). Having acted in The Clinic for seven series, listener’s will be surprised to hear the fascinating story of how she was working in coffee shops in London during that period (51:00). Amy also speaks frankly about her struggle with self-doubt and experiencing ‘imposter syndrome’ early on in her career (45:00).

From getting the boat to Wales just to get cherry lip balm (6:00), learning to act with Chris O’Dowd in UCD’s Drama Society (38:00) and how being handcuffed to Bill Bailey for a day got her through a hard time (19:00), this episode is not to be missed.
