Fair City star Leah Egan has admitted she finds it weird kissing her co-stars.

The actress who plays resident man-eater Louise, revealed she’s nothing like her soap character.

“Being an actor is a weird job because you get paid to kiss your colleagues. But that’s part of the job description for that day – that scene, that moment,” she said.

Strange: Leah revealed it’s strange to be in a job where she gets paid to kiss her colleagues

“It can be a strange concept for some people to understand. It’s just a job, there are no ulterior motives,

“You just need to steer clear of the onion and garlic at lunch. It’s common courtesy,” she added.

Meanwhile the Athlone actress admitted she enjoys getting recognised on public transport.

“I love to have a chat with strangers – it can brighten up a bus journey. It’s one of the highlights of the job,” she told the Herald.
