Dublin actress Aisling Franciosi has defended last year’s IFTAs.
While controversy surrounded the show last year over technical difficulties, The Fall star said the awards are always important.
“It’s a big night and I am honoured to be nominated,” she told Goss.ie.
“I know there’s been controversy about the IFTAs before but I think it’s really important that we have something that celebrates home grown talent.”
And Aisling was a winner on the night, landing the gong for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama.
