Sarah Greene, star of shows like Normal People and Penny Dreadful, has announced she has recently become a mother for the first time.

The Glanmire actor, 36,  and her musician boyfriend welcomed a baby boy at the start of the year.

During an interview with UK online news outlet iNews, she stated that she was looking forward to introducing him to the rest of her family.

“The last year has been life-changing in the best possible way, although we haven’t seen my family for months.

“We've had lovely bonding time, the three of us getting to know each other, but I can’t wait to show [our son] off a bit now.”

She co-stars in Frank Of Ireland, an off-beat comedy series also featuring brothers Brian and Domhnall Gleeson, premiering tonight on Channel 4 after Covid-19-related delays that saw Greene return to set five months pregnant after shooting resumed.

 Greene's father played hurling for Glen Rovers, and told the Irish Examiner in 2015 about her school days and early forays into acting. 

“I went to St Angela’s on [St Patrick’s] Hill and hung out at the Old Vic [a city centre snooker club]. I’ve always been very passionate about acting. I appeared in panto in the Everyman from the age of five.

“After school, I took a year off to save for drama school. I worked in Rossini [an Italian restaurant], and the Shelbourne Bar on MacCurtain Street, and as a make-up artist in Brown Thomas. I’m very independent, have always known what I wanted.”
