Richard Flood, the star of TV3's new soap Red Rock has revealed that his fiancee Gabriella Pession (right) is a fan of his on-screen garda uniform.
"She has to tell me she thinks I'm gorgeous. She might have just been spinning me a lie but I'm happy to live in ignorance," he said.
The couple are set to get married soon with a ceremony in Italy and later a party in Ireland.
"There are plans for a wedding," Richard revealed.
"It will be in Italy and we will also have a celebration back in Ireland. Gabriella is shooting a TV show in Rome at the moment and she's commuting over and back as much as she can.
"A lot of it depends on work because we commute a lot. (Our son) Julio was born in Ireland and he has been in Italy since Christmas," he added.
The pair met while working on US TV show Crossing Lines, which also starred Donald Sutherland.
"Working with Donald is really an acting lesson - you're just there to watch and learn," he said.
