AMY Huberman's man has a huge day looming this weekend – but the actress put off any pre-match nerves by flying to London for her big movie premiere.

While Brian O'Driscoll is in Paris ahead of the last Six Nations game in France tomorrow, Amy (34) flew across to England.

She was in the capital city to walk the red carpet for The Stag in Leicester Square.

However, the trip to London is a whistle-stop tour. Amy will make a return pit-stop in Dublin before flying out again to France to cheer on the Ireland side.

BOD will line out for Ireland one final time in the Stade de France on Saturday evening.

And in recognition of the momentous occasion, Amy was sent a specially designed Newbridge Silverware pendant emblazoned with the number 13 – her husband's shirt number.

Amy's star is continuing to rise both at home and abroad as she is already considered one of Ireland's top actresses.

She recently featured on Perez Hilton's list of '14 TV Shows from Overseas That Should Come to America, but NOT As Remakes' for her role in the now-defunct Threesome.

RECOGNITION

It marks just the latest recognition as The Stag will also be released in the US and is premiering at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival, albeit under a different name.

But to prevent it from getting lost in translation, the producers of The Stag have renamed it The Bachelor Weekend.

The makers of the comedy, which features mother-of-one Amy (34) alongside Hugh O'Connor and Andrew Scott, secured major distribution in the US but gave the Irish movie an alternative title as they felt fans in the US would not know what "stag do" meant.

Roscommon man Chris O'Dowd's 2009 film The Boat That Rocked was renamed Pirate Radio in the US, while the big screen adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was changed to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Amy features in this series of O'Dowd's comedy Moone Boy as a hippy art teacher.
