Shahira in efron's new film

Tiffany Stanley - watch out. She's not the only Irish model aiming to carve out a name for herself in LA, you know.

Galway girl Shahira Barry (23) is continuing to make waves after being lured over by the bright lights of Hollywood during the summer.

And she has made her first foray into the acting world after landing what she says is a "small part" on the new Zac Efron movie We Are Your Friends.

Shahira (inset) remarked on her Twitter page how it was "happy days" as she continues shooting for the role, as well as working on the set of Dancing With The Stars.

Although she's been over there less than two months, the brunette beauty has already partied in the famous Playboy Mansion after attending Hugh Hefner's Midsummer Night Dream party.

She joined a string of famous faces, including Kim Kardashian's former hubbie Kris Humphries at the bash, which nicely tied in with her ultimate dream of becoming a Playmate.

The model, who has a three-year visa to work in America, has said the prospect of posing nude doesn't bother her in the slightest as she pursues her dream of branching out into acting and singing.
