The Love/Hate star has a role in the film which stars Chan as a man whose family was taken by the IRA and who sets out to get revenge.

"Very random pairing!" says Charlie of the movie.  "We're filmng at the moment and we just have a Christmas break now.

"I love acting so much because you can be in a corset one minute and fighting Jackie Chan the next!".

However, the actress has yet to meet the man himself.

"I haven't met him yet, so that's January, I'll let you know [what he's like] then!"

Charlie is currently starring in RTE's new five part series Rebellion, about the 1916 Rising, which kicks off on RTE One on January 3.
