Kardashians? Wait 'til you get a load of us Cassidys

Panto queen Megan Cassidy thinks she and her sultry sisters have what it takes to become Ireland's answer to the Kardashians.

"We could be the next Kardashians – get a reality TV show going," Megan laughed. "Although perhaps we're more like the Nolans."

Megan, who stars as Snow White in the Gaiety Christmas Panto, says her two model sisters Katelyn and Hannah also enjoy being in the limelight.

"My younger sisters are both models with Assets so they like being in front of the camera," she said.

"They're both younger than me and are very blonde and very tanned. Obviously I'm not – that's probably why I was picked to play Snow White."

AMBITIONS

Megan is in the middle of the panto run and busy storming the stage with seven outspoken and strong willed dwarves.

The Waterford native says both her sisters had musical ambitions but in recent years have gravitated towards the glitz and glamour of the modelling world.

"They both used to dance and Hannah is a great singer but at the moment they're focusing on the modelling."

Katelyn (21) has been making waves over the past two years.

She's strutted her stuff on the catwalk for A-wear, shot editorials for Stellar magazine and starred in a Lucozade campaign.

The model is tipped to become the next big thing.

Baby of the family Hannah isn't doing too badly either.

The model was crowned Miss Waterford in 2012 and is busy building up her portfolio.

"My mum is a nurse and my dad works in land registry so the three of us went down a different route," Megan (24) says.

"We hang out together. And when we were younger we all used to come up from Waterford to watch the Gaiety Panto so getting the lead role in it is amazing."

Megan also stars on RTE kids show Professor Fun and Doctor Dull.

"I was in work when I got the call telling me I'd got the part so I had to play it cool," she said.

"It's completely different from working in RTE. Professor Fun is hyper and over the top and always screaming. So I have to calm down a bit for Snow White, she's not as loud."

The actress recently split from her boyfriend and is enjoying single life.
