Victoria Smurfit ‘keeping busy’ in wake of marriage split

Irish actress Victoria Smurfit is occupying herself with work commitments and projects as she prepares to divorce her husband, Doug Baxter.
Smurfit announced the news that she was splitting from media entrepreneur Baxter in February.
The couple had been married for 15 years, and are parents to Evie Dorothy, Ridley Belle and Flynn Alexander.
The former Ballykissangel star, who is based in Los Angeles, is about to start working on a new movie, Homecoming.
Homecoming is essentially a 'Mean Girls' for grown ups, Smurfit explained to The Irish Daily Mail.
"I start shooting in Portland at the end of July. I play the head mean girl which should be fun," she told the outlet.
The 41-year-old actress is also getting ready for the promotional tour for her other movie Bait which will be released in the early Autumn.
"It’s a funny, down-to-earth and very disturbing film, set in the north of England," Victoria said of the revenge thriller.
Smurfit is expected to jet back to Ireland in August for MCM Ireland Comic Con, alongside her Once Upon A Time co-stars Kristin Bauer and Merrin Dungey.
