Glanmire native Sarah Greene has been named as Cork Person of the Month for January 2020 to mark her many international acting achievements to date.
Over the last decade, Greene has featured in many films, TV series and theatre productions.
Her most recent screen credits include starring roles in Dublin Murders, Penny Dreadful and Ransom.
She will soon be seen in the new 12-part BBC series ‘Normal People’, directed by Oscar-nominated Lenny Abrahamson.
Based on the novel by Sally Rooney, ‘Normal People’ tracks the tender but complicated relationship of a couple from their school days in small-town in the West of Ireland, to their years at Trinity College.
‘Normal People’ won the 2019 Book of the Year at the British Book Awards for Sally Rooney and entered the New York Times bestseller list at No 3.
This year Sarah will also star in the yet to be released BBC One series ‘Roadkill’ alongside Hugh Laurie.
This is a political thriller about a self-made Conservative minister who embodies the fictional future of the Conservative party. Comic-turned-dramatic actor Hugh Laurie plays the ruthless politician in this 4 part series.
Her work on the West End and Broadway in productions of The Cripple of Inishmaan with Daniel Radcliffe, of Harry Potter fame, won her huge acclaim.
Sarah Greene’s name will now go forward for possible selection as Cork Person of the Year 2020 at a gala awards lunch to be held at year’s end.
