Living a life in the spotlight


Fresh from finishing filming on her latest film ‘The Rain’ with Rebellion’s Paul Reid, which was filmed amid the stunning landscape of Connemara, Mullingar actress Niamh Algar has had a busy year.

The stunning Mullingar actress has been involved in three big projects this year, including horror-thriller ‘Without Name’ which just had its world premier at the Toronto Film Festival last month and BFI London Festival this month for its UK premier.

Speaking to Topic, Niamh said the film, which was directed by the multi award-winning Lorcan Finnegan, is the most interesting project she has worked on. “It’s quite artistic in its approach to its genre. Two two years ago, I went to my first premiere which was the Galway Film Festival. I saw Lorcan’s film ‘Foxes’ and thought it was really unusual what he was doing and his tone and the way he was able to create this kind of anxiety.”
