Amy's delight as she lands yet another feelgood movie role

ACTRESS Amy Huberman has landed another lead role in one of Hallmark's feelgood movies.

The stunning blonde has just finished shooting a new romantic comedy for the American channel entitled Chasing Leprechauns, days after her last Hallmark film -- Three Wise Women -- aired.

Amy (31) will star alongside Adrian Pasdar (45), the American actor who shot to fame when he portrayed Senator Nathan Petrelli in award-winning series Heroes.

"The production was on a tight schedule, it only wrapped up at the end of last week," a spokesperson for Parallel Films told the Herald.

"The film was shot entirely in Ireland around the Wicklow/ Dublin area."

While no transmission date has been set yet, it is understood that the made-for-TV movie could air within months, as is typical for Hallmark movies.

The US channel could give Ireland's sweetheart amazing exposure abroad as it produces around 35 original films each year that are screened in more than 100 countries.

Amy certainly appears to be raising her profile on the other side of the Atlantic -- Chasing Leprechauns is her second Hallmark production in months.

The Dublin beauty completed filming rom-com Three Wise Women in early October, alongside veteran actress and Emmy award winner Fionnula Flanagan. In the movie, penned by best-selling author Cecelia Ahern, Amy plays Liz who has everything a girl could ever want -- a successful career as a doctor and an equally successful fiance -- but who is somehow unhappy.

Luckily for her, she is visited by spirits from the past and future, who help her find the right path and her very own "happily ever after" in a conclusion that thrilled chick-lit fans when it aired last week.

A source close to the Irish celebrity told the Herald that she was delighted with her current projects.

"She hasn't had a minute to herself and she loves it. Almost as soon as she was finished with Three Wise Women, she started filming on the new Hallmark film," the insider said.


"It's a great experience for her, the films are shown all over the world and they're really popular, especially over the holidays," she added.

The actress-turned-author is so in demand at the moment that she has had to put her new book on hold.

Amy admitted earlier this month that she was unlikely to have time to resume writing until the New Year with her big screen career going from strength to strength.

Chasing Leprechauns is being produced by Peter Norris, who is responsible for Honeymoon For One, another film for the Hallmark channel shot in Ireland in recent months which stars Victoria Smurfit (36) and Nicollette Sheridan (46).
