  • Rose Henderson, actor

    If you're a similar age to myself even seeing a picture of Rose Henderson will bring a smile to your face as memories of Saturday morning hysteria at her antics on Pajo's Junkbox come flooding back. No? Well how about this: Rose Henderson played Sister Assumpta in Father Ted, and Biggest Fan in the Daniel O’Donnell ad. Got the giggles yet? There you go now! She wrote and played Mrs. T in Ruby Tuesday, Val in Fair City, Wanda in Snow White at the Gaiety, Breda in Weighing In by Ger Gallagher, Bernie in Boom? by Isobel Mahon and Cepta in Nowhere Fast by Alison Spittle. Coming up in 2018: her Show in a Bag play Take Off Your Cornflakes

  • Clare Monnelly is our first actor to go under the #24HrDub microscope (have we ever had a microscope as a prop? There's an idea!) Clare is an actor and writer who trained at the Gaiety School of Acting.

This year she wrote and performed her debut play Charlie's a Clepto in Axis Ballymun and on tour, and was subsequently awarded the Jim McNaughton Tilestyle Bursary for Commissioned Artists. Screen work includes Rip to the Rescue, Alison Spittle in Ireland, Smitten, Identicals, Scup and three series of International Emmy Award winning

  • Marcus Lamb, Heartbreak House, The Abbey Theatre

    It was a long time until dinner and a long time since lunch when we caught up with Marcus Lamb. 2016 alone saw him playing such iconic roles as Patrick Pearse in RTÉ's Rebellion and then Christopher Roulston in Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme in The Abbey Theatre so he had a busy year! It's great that he had time to get involved in The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre supported by BNP Paribas Real Estate. To kick things off I asked Marcus to describe himself, "A long lanky strip of a mickey dazzler that loves Columbo and Jamaican Ginger Cake." and then wondered if he had taken part in The 24 Hour

  • Claudia Carroll, Actor

    "If my my granny were still around, she'd probably describe me as 'a grand young one. Although she's getting on a bit now. And she doesn't go to Mass as often as she should. Now stop asking questions and go and make me a nice mug of Complan. It's nearly time for the Angelus." This is my introduction to Claudia Carroll, who every so often graces our TV screens as Fair City's Nicola Prendergast and who also works as an author - her 14th novel hits the shelves this March.  She is joining the creative team of The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre supported by BNP Paribas Real Estate as an actor.
