My father, a voice coach, worked on the Michael Collins movie and I remember hearing ‘de Valera’ make his big speech in the crowd. Irish film is a passion to this day. I don’t like dropping names but I also met Brad Pitt who stayed at our house for a bit. My brother Andy was a toddler and they played on the floor. But all I was interested in, as I was obsessed with Oasis, was whether he’d met Liam Gallagher.
