Missy Keating, daughter of Yvonne Connolly and Ronan Keating, has revealed that she dreams of having a career in Hollywood.
The 15 year old actress took a break from the camera to focus on her studies this year.
However, speaking to Irish Country Magazine, Missy said she plans to return to acting once her exams are done.
“I just want to have fun. It’ll be fourth year next year, my transition year, so I can take the time off and I can just enjoy it," she said.
The actress also said she can’t wait to get back to reading for different roles in the hopes of breaking Hollywood one day.
“Yeah that’s the big dream but I just want to get back into auditions because that’s the best, all the experience I can get," said the budding actress.
Missy has already racked up roles in flims including 2013’s Dark Touch and the 2015 short The Library.
In 2013 she also starred in her biggest role to date in the movie adaptation of John Banville’s award-winning novel The Sea.
The future of the young rising star seems bright as she has already acted alongside big names like James Nesbitt, Sinead Cusack and Ciaran Hinds.
Missy also spoke about her close relationship with her mum Yvonne who has helped her along the way.
“She has always given me tips on everything," said Missy. "She’s always telling me, ‘This is the best way to look when you turn this way.’ So she is always really helpful.”
