Actress Smurfit hit by restriction

Victoria Ann Baxter was restricted from being a company director on December 16 last until 2018.

The section 150 restriction will make life a bit more difficult for her, should she ever decide to go into business in Ireland again.

However, in real life, it probably won't make a blind bit of difference. For Victoria Ann Baxter is the married name of star Irish actress Victoria Smurfit, right, niece of cardboard tycoon Michael and a member of one of Ireland's wealthiest families.

Smurfit, who now has an address in Santa Monica, California, with husband Doug (also restricted as a director on the same day) is now starring in the NBC hit drama Dracula, alongside Cork's Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

The restriction relates to the collapse of Baxter's Ocean Brand Opportunities, which went into liquidation in October 2012.
