Rebellion star Sarah Greene is to be honoured alongside Snow Patrol and James Corden at the US-Ireland Alliance's Oscar Wilde Awards, which will be held ahead of the Oscars next month.

The awards take place at the offices of JJ Abrams' Bad Robot production company on February 25, with the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director emceeing on the night. 

Sarah Greene as May in Rebellion

Greene, whose other credits include the Victorian thriller series Penny Dreadful and the Christina Noble biopic Noble, was nominated in 2014 for Tony and Laurence Olivier stage awards in the US and UK for her role in Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan

Commenting on the US-Ireland Alliance's decision to honour Greene, the organisation's founder, Trina Vargo, said: "Several years ago we honoured Saoirse Ronan when she was maybe not quite a household name, but it was obvious she would be."

"Sarah is in a similar position where all I can say is, 'Watch this space!' She already has an impressive career in theatre and television in Ireland and the UK and she is now deservedly being noticed in the US," Vargo continued.

Rebellion, which is continuing on RTÉ One on Sunday nights, will be shown on the Sundance channel in the US later this year. 

The Oscars take place on Sunday February 28 with Irish films Brooklyn and Room among the nominees.
