Love/Hate made her a household name in Ireland, and now actress Aoibhinn McGinnity looks set to become a star across the pond.
The Monaghan native has bagged a role in ‘Quarry’, a tv show aired on HBO.
Quarry, based on novels of the same name by Max Allan Collins, follows the story of a marine in Tennessee in the 1970s.
It’s a case of history repeating itself as the 28-year-old actress will play the role of Marcy, the love-interest of one of the criminal underworld leaders.
The show has been picked up for eight episodes and is set to hit tv screens in 2016.
The brunette beauty made the decision to try crack the acting world across the pond following her acclaimed turn as Love/Hate’s Trish and a stint as Jovie in Elf The Musical.
Once she landed in America, the star wasted no time in signing with talent agencies Gersh and Bill Butler Management.
"You know, they're lovely, lovely people so I'm delighted with the way it's gone so far," she recently told The Herald about her new pursuit.
