...while namesake Ms LipSetT bags role IN SMASH US TV SHOW

IRISH beauty Roz Lipsett has nabbed a role on cult TV soap The Young and the Restless.

The 28-year-old model and actress will soon be seen by seven million viewers Stateside after landing a part on the cheesy CBS hit show.

Lipsett (left) is filming the part this weekend and said she "loved being part of America's longest-running soap".

She described it as a "small role", but was over the moon to be involved in such an established show.

The ambitious Dubliner has been blazing a trail since departing these shores for the bright lights of Hollywood, and will be celebrating St Patrick's Day over there.

Now signed with Wilhelmina Models and Paradigm Talent, she has spent the past two years dipping her toes in the acting world as she continues building up her profile.
