She's made some A-list pals since swapping the Irish social scene for the bright lights of Hollywood and model Shahira Barry looks happier than ever as she poses with singer Christina Milian.
The teacher-turned- actress tweeted a picture of her and friends with the American R'n'B star and hinted that she was filming a new project with the AM to PM singer.
LA-based Shahira has been making her mark on the acting scene since moving to America last year, landing minor roles in movie Ted 2 and also in TV series True Detective, which stars Colin Farrell.
The part-Bangladeshi beauty is no stranger to the celebrity lifestyle since moving and mingled with singer Chris Brown and Twilight actor Kellan Lutz at a star-studded bash just a couple of months ago.
The actress rubbed shoulders with the stars when she attended a party hosted by millionaire poker player Dan Bilzerian at his LA mansion.
Shahira also partied with Snoop Dogg during her Vegas birthday celebrations.
The Galway native was recently forced to move from her LA pad to a new home after living there turned into "one of the worst experiences of her life".
In a blog post, the actress wrote that she was living a "nightmare".
"What is having a beautiful home if you live in an absolute nightmare," she said. "It was ridiculously draining."
Shahira said that she would often cry when returning home after working a long day on the film set.
Now she has settled in Beverly Hills, she is now fully content.
"As a young female from another country my new area feels so much safer and also a lot more community orientated which is what I am used to from home."
