'I was never one of the cool kids at UCD' - Amy Huberman on her college years
Amy Huberman has said that she was never one of the "cool kids" while she was in college.
Speaking to Jarlath Regan on his An Irishman Abroad podcast, the actress opened up about her time in UCD, during which she completed an undergraduate and post-graduate degree.
While she might be considered Ireland's Sweetheart now, she said she wasn't always popular and had to start from the ground up when she was enrolled there.
Regan, who also attended UCD, noted there were a number of students from south Dublin in the college who already knew groups of people from growing up with them, whereas he and Huberman knew no one.
"I always felt on the periphery of that," said the mum-of-two.
The Can't Cope Won't Cope star joined the drama society in college after deciding not to study acting, where she met a group of friends, including Moone Boy actor Chris O'Dowd.
"I was never cool enough to be in the elite," she revealed.
"It wasn't something that meant anything to me anyway."
"I was never one of the cool kids. We all knew they existed but I was not in there."
"I had a great crew of friends, where that didn't really seem important."
Huberman (37) was officially bitten by the acting bug after her time in the society and has gone on to star in several television series' and movies, including The Clinic, Threesome and Your Bad Self.
She is currently filming for new RTE legal drama Striking Out, which is due to air next year.
