Huberman's three-in-a-bed scene is her raunchiest yet
The Irish actress and wife of BOD has ditched her clean-cut image for a chance to make it big in the UK, says Niamh Horan
FANS of Irish actress Amy Huberman are in for a shock when they see the star ditching her clean-cut image for her raunchiest role yet.
In the first episode of her new series Threesome, which bears the cheeky title "No eye contact, no c*ck touching", the 31-year-old star can be seen French- kissing two men at once, begging for sex, stripping to her lingerie and popping drugs. The award-winning actress, who is married to Irish rugby international Brian O'Driscoll, will play an expectant mum in the new British sitcom which it is hoped will make the former Clinic actress a household name in the UK.
And a source close to the star explained that Amy was determined to challenge herself with her latest project:
"This is definitely her raunchiest role yet. Her legions of fans, who fell in love with her character Daisy O'Callaghan on The Clinic, are in for a big shock.
"Amy has made her name on these shores as a fun-loving, clean-cut girl next door, the type that wouldn't be caught dead falling out of a nightclub drunk or caught up in a scandal. It's just not her. She's whiter than white.
"So that's why her new role will knock people for six. She wanted to take a totally different direction and work on something outside her comfort zone. This is going to grab a lot of headlines when it airs."
The programme, which will hit screens on Comedy Central this month, focuses on three friends on the verge of turning 30.
Amy plays Alice, who lives with her boyfriend Mitch (Stephen Wight) and their gay best friend Richie (Emun Elliott), who impulsively decide to have a threesome while on a night out celebrating Alice's birthday.
Their bed-hopping ends in an unplanned pregnancy and the trio decide to raise the baby together.
"It has a very funny premise. It sees me living with my boyfriend and gay best friend and they live in this very strange domestic threesome situation, but it's really funny," Amy said.
But she admitted that she and her co-stars were nervous about how it would be received by fans.
The star, who is in New Zealand supporting her husband in the Rugby World Cup, took to her Twitter site to gush about the new show saying: "So giddy about Threesome!! That sounds weird . . . It's actually the launch of our new show for Comedy Central in London today... Yay!!!"
Amy added that she loved the challenge of a comedy role in the seven-part series, which starts on the satellite channel on October 17.
