FROM teaching to visiting the Playboy mansion to joining the cast of Carraigstown, Jenny Dixon has a more colourful resume than most.

But the model-turned-actress has revealed that in the future she would love to try her hand at an action movie.

The blonde beauty who joined Fair City last year told the Diary that taking up a role in an action blockbuster would be her ideal job.

"Down the line some action might be great," she said.

Jenny, who was a science teacher in a school on Dublin's northside before moving into acting, already has a slight upper hand when it comes to Lara Croft-style roles.

She has some martial arts training under her belt.

"It was a long time ago but I think it stays with you," she said.

She appeared on Irish screens as Mondo's love interest last year and has been making waves ever since.

"I'm just so happy to be a working actress and I adore the character of Kerri-Ann that I play," she continued.

invites The Dubliner impressed Hugh Hefner with her portfolio and landed invites to some of the most glamorous events on the Playboy calendar.

She has jetted to LA several times to pursue her acting ambitions.

Whatever action awaits the actress down the line for now, she is really enjoying her time with RTE.

"We've just been shooting the specials for Christmas and New Year's and that's always a bit of extra excitement because there is more cast in," she said.

"It's lovely," she added.
