The 36-year-old from Belfast attended as part of her contributions to The Ferryman, a play which tells the tale of a former IRA man in rural Co Armagh during The Troubles. She was nominated in the Best Actress in a Leading Role category and while she didn't walk away with a statue, she was honoured on-stage when her partner, writer Jez Butterworth lovingly thanked her.
