Hollie is 21 years old and from Limerick where she is currently studying Early Child Care and Education at Mary Immaculate College. She is also a part time dance and drama teacher at Centre Stage School in Limerick.
Hollie has taken part in a number of amateur musical theatre shows in the past, but if she got the role of Serena it would be her first professional job, and as she says, the first step towards 'making it'.
Hollie comes from a very musical family, her mother sings in a band and her father is a drummer who toured Ireland with the Tony Collins Showband. Hollie joined a stage school when she was 8 and by 17 was auditioning for musical theatre schools in London, she didn't get accepted but has used the feedback they gave her to get to where she is today.
Hollie says she is a positive person and always sees the good in everything, but that she sometimes can be over passionate about her interests and can therefore become too focussed on one thing.
