You’ll know Sarah Bolger as the little girl who starred alongside her sister in Jim Sheridan’s In America, back in 2002. Since then, she’s been flitting between LA and Europe, working on big projects like Harry Potter, The Tudors, Once Upon a Time (ABC) and her latest movie, The Moth Diaries alongside Lily Cole. She’s the girl from Rathfarnham with a cool, LA swagger, but with a heart that’s all Irish. We’re loving that she’s the face of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer in Ireland too.
Beauty essentials? I love Clé de Peau concealer. They’re a French beauty brand and I always pick one up when I’m in France. Armani eight-hour lipstick is great, it really lasts all day and the colour is intense.
Are you a shoe or a bag person? I’m a bag person – Mulberrys are a weakness, for sure. But I do love my shoes. I love Jimmy Choo. If I had all the money in the world I’d fill my wardrobe with them!
What are your favorite Dublin food spots? When I get off the plane, I always head to Avoca. Chunky chips are my favorite. I’m also very partial to a Butlers hot chocolate.
Who would you love to work with? I was blessed to start my career working with my sister; nothing will ever top that. She’s not into the acting thing at the moment, but I’m hoping she and I will work together again one day.
What are your travel essentials? The only things I need to travel are my iPad and passport! I’m not fussy as long as I have plenty of books. I’m interested in every genre, though I do come upon books a little late. I just read The Da Vinci Code and loved it!
Do you have a favourite store? I tend to pick up pieces from everywhere. I love Topshop and Brown Thomas.
What’s your vice? Coffee! My mum gave me a Nespresso machine for my 16th birthday and I’ve been addicted ever since.
