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.

Once she landed in America, the star wasted no time in signing with talent agencies Gersh and Bill Butler Management.
