Sarah Greene chills out with pals in Dublin as 'mediocre' US drama fails to impress
Sarah Greene kicked back and enjoyed some down time in Dublin ahead of the US premiere of her new CBS drama, Ransom.
The Cork actress was spotted enjoying a few fancy cocktails in the Woollen Mills on Ormond Quay and The Exchequer Bar with pals last week.
She recently finished filming American crime drama Ransom on location in France and has now returned home to begin working on her next film project, Black 47.
It's set during the Famine and will also star Matrix actor Hugo Weaving, Vikings star Moe Dun- ford, Stephen Rea, Jim Broadbent and Freddie Fox.
In CBS show Ransom, Sarah takes on the role of private investigator Maxine Carlson. The show was created by Frank Spotnitz, who previously worked on The X-Files.
The first episode aired on New Year's Day, but it has been met with lukewarm reviews in the States. The New York Times described the storyline as "clickbait TV plotting", while The Hollywood Reporter said it was "not very memorable" and "mediocre".
However, viewers seemed more enthralled, and Sarah's performance was praised.
She last appeared on Irish TV screens in period drama Penny Dreadful and 1916 show Rebellion.
In 2015 she picked up the Best Actress IFTA for her role in Deirdre O'Kane's drama, Noble.
Sarah used to date Poldark star Aidan Turner, but they parted company in November 2015. The pair remain good friends, and Sarah has said she would like to work with him at some stage.
Turner was also in Dublin last week. The TV hunk was seen dining with friends at Musashi restaurant on Capel Street.
