Lisa Duffy opens up about son Jay's (20) acting ambitions
Most parents would be worried about their children pursuing a career in the spotlight, but Lisa Duffy isn't worried about her son Jay becoming an actor.
The 20-year-old has previously appeared in top soap Hollyoaks and will appear in Irish film Handsome Devil next year.
"It's something he's very passionate about. He's in drama school now and he's loving that," she told the Diary.
"I just feel that if it is what he wants to do then let him give it a shot and he is young enough that if it doesn't work out then he could back to college and do something else.
"I'm very proud of him that at this stage in his life, he knows already what he wants to do. He's very focused," she added.
Her other half Keith will spend Christmas in the Sleeping Beauty panto in Limerick and Lisa said she'll be down to see the show.
"You just have to say to yourself that he's gone for a couple of weeks and he'll be back for Christmas," she said. "Limerick's not far, we can bring Mia down for a night and then come back up."
