Actress Seana Kerslake says she couldn't look Amy Huberman in the face when they first started working together - because she would burst out laughing.

The Tallaght native (25) has a role alongside Amy in new RTE series Can't Cope, Won't Cope - a series which follows two girls from the country who live and work in Dublin.

Seana stars as Aisling, a girl with a good job and lots of money to spend, while Amy plays her boss and Nika McGuigan stars as Danielle. Seana admitted it was the mum-of-two's comedic skills that made it difficult to keep a straight face on set.

"Amy plays my boss. She's amazing. She's great fun. Initially when I met her, I had to get used to doing scenes with her," she told the Herald.

"I couldn't look her in the eye because she would make me laugh just by looking at her. I had to get over that."

The Dubliner had nothing but good things to say about her famous co-star and revealed she was great to her co-workers during filming.

"She was brilliant to work with and very caring. She comes in every morning with a really good attitude and she's ready to work."

Discussing her character on the show, Seana admitted she's just barely scraping by when the audience meet her.

"It's about two girls from Cork who are living in Dublin," she said.

"My character has a good job and she makes good money so she has very little responsibility. Her name is Aisling. She's got a lot of disposable income.

"We work in this office with investors and I'm good at my job but I scrape by."

The series marks Amy's biggest role on television since she starred as Alice on UK comedy series Threesome in 2011.

The 37-year-old has several roles in the pipeline including Handsome Devil, with Mo Dunford and Andrew Scott. She will also be seen in Kill Ratio, with Tom Hopper and Nick Dunning.
