Dublin actress Ruth Kearney is making waves in Los Angeles.

Not only has Ruth landed a role opposite comedy king Will Arnett in upcoming Netflix series Flaked, but she is also dating box office hunk and Divergent star Theo James.

The 26-year-old, who studied at St Andrew's College Dublin, got her big break in 2007 when she landed a role in ITV series Primeval.

Since then, Ruth has appeared in a variety of TV shows including Fox series The Following with Kevin Bacon.

But now the talented beauty is busy filming Flaked in LA. The eight-part series was written by Arrested Development star Arnett.

Ruth plays the part of a beautiful waitress called London who catches the eye of two men - Chip (Arnett) and Dennis (David Sullivan).


The series is set to be released across all Netflix territories next year, which is sure to increase Ruth's international profile.

Meanwhile, rumours are rife that Ruth is set to wed her famous other half, Theo, who hails from England.

The couple looked loved-up when they enjoyed a visit to New York last weekend.

Sources close to Ruth, said she's really busy in LA but took some time out to fly to the Big Apple to spend time with Theo, who she has been dating since 2011. Theo was recently in Ireland filming The Secret Scripture.
