A 15 year old Irish actress takes the lead in new Netflix series Anne of Green Gables.

Donegal actress Amybeth McNulty (15) shines in the trailer for the new series which arrives on the streaming service on May 12.

Sporting a perfect Canadian accent she takes the lead role of Anne Shirley in the series which is based on the 1908 novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery.

The series will run over eight episodes and follows the trials and tribulations of 11-year-old orphan Anne who is sent to a small Nova Scotia town to live with a pair of elderly siblings who had expected to adopt a boy to work on their farm.

Viewers may recognise Amybeth from RTE series Clean Break and last year's creepy horror Morgan when she played Morgan aged 10.
