Holly Carpenter - 'I could be the female Colin Farrell'

Eimear Rabbitte

She is the clean-living gym bunny and star of this year's 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model' who is dating Irish rugby star Cian Healy.

He is the former hell raiser, known for his boozy binges, womanising ways and dating Britney Spears. He is also known for his critically acclaimed performances in 'Tigerland' and 'In Bruges'.

They appear to have little in common except for the fact they both hail from Dublin.

But top Dublin model Holly Carpenter says she has what it takes to be the female Colin Farrell.

Holly (21) is hoping to use her exposure on BINTM to launch her acting career.

And the girlfriend of Leinster and Irish prop Cian Healy is taking her new-found passion seriously after signing up for a presenting and acting course in the prestigious Gaiety School of Acting.

The school is famous for breeding a host of high-calibre acting talent, including Castleknock-native Colin.

And Holly wants a go at emulating the 37-year-old's success.

"The school has a great reputation, Colin Farrell went there, so if he can make it, I think I can," she said.

"I'd love to follow in his footsteps," Holly told the Herald.

She discovered her passion for presenting and acting work after her time on set with BINTM.

Holly was on hand yesterday to help launch Arnotts new autumn/winter lingerie collection, which includes new brands Huit and Mimi Holiday.

She paraded a variety of the fancy smalls at the Vintage Cocktail Club in Temple Bar.
