Pippa O'Connor Ormond has revealed she will feature in an upcoming Hollywood film, writes Denise O'Donoghue.

Pippa said she was offered a speaking role in the animated movie, Ferdinand, which follows the story of a friendly bull.

"They contacted me and they were like, 'would you like to have a speaking part in a movie?' And I was like, 'yes!'," she told Irish Country Magazine.

"So it was really fun to go London and stand in a very fancy booth and do my lines.

"Really, anything is possible."

Ferdinand also stars David Tennant, John Cena and Kate McKinnon and will be released on December 16.
