Irish actress, producer and writer, Sharon Horgan, told RTÉ Entertainment it was "magical" working on big Hollywood production, Game Night.

The movie, which stars Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman, follows a group of friends whose game night turns into a real-life murder mystery. 

The Catastrophe star, who was raised on a farm in Co. Meath, said the big budget project lived up to her expectations.

"Yeah, it did actually. It was exciting doing something that was a big studio movie because it's bigger and more sort of bigger and magical.

"But at the same time, it's kind of the people involved in it like Rachel [McAdams] and Jason [Bateman].

"Just getting to see them do their thing, and to see how even when you're famous on that scale, you can still be a really decent and nice person. That's a good sort of lesson!"

Boyle man Chris O'Dowd may be making a name for himself Stateside, but Horgan says she has no plans set her sights on Hollywood.

"No, she laughed. "It wasn't me looking at anyone. It was just that I had a little bit of free time and I thought it would be a fun thing to do."

Game Night is in cinemas now.
