Goss.ie spoke exclusively to Amy about how she prepared for the role of Tara in Striking Out.
She said, “I think with the emotional stuff, you just have to go into your own well. You put yourself in the situation.
“For the personal stuff, as an actor, there’s so many situations that you’ll be in that you haven’t personally been in.

She also added, “If you have empathy as a person you can put yourself in that situation, and go for it.”
In Striking Out, Amy acts one scene out in her underwear, Goss.ie asked her how she felt about being that exposed on camera.
“I don’t go ‘Yay, today is the day.’ But listen, it’s a part of what we do,” she said.
“If a story needs for it and it’s right within all of it, then it’s just a part of the story that you’re telling.”
