Róisín is 24 years old and from Newry in County Down. She is a jobbing actress and has toured the UK, Ireland and Asia for 10 months with 'Thomas and Friends, Live on Stage' as the Fat Controller's girlfriend, Mrs Martin. Róisín has also taken part in Robin Hood at Belfast's Waterfront Hall as a dancer.
Róisín has just recently returned to London following her role in Robin Hood in Belfast. She originally moved to London 5 years ago to study musical theatre at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts where she graduated from in 2007. Róisín says getting the role of Serena would be particularly important to her because she would be able to make a living in musical theatre in Ireland as opposed to the UK and therefore, move home.
Róisín is particularly excited about making it to the live shows having been called up after Fame School to take the place of the 6th girl, who was unable to take part. She says this has made her even more determined to perform her absolute best saying; 'I think I've worked really hard to get here and I'm going to give it my all'.
