Irish stage and screen actress Susan Lynch has performed to great acclaim in Irish and English productions, including such crossover hits as "Waking Ned Devine." Born in Northern Ireland, Lynch studied drama in London at the Central School of Speech and Drama before making her way into television with an early part in the popular British crime series "Cracker." She soon found small roles in such high-profile films as John Sayles' "The Secret of Roan Inish" and the Anne Rice gothic-horror movie "Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles." Further television work led to a bigger part, in the comedic feature about a man struck dead by the shock of winning the lottery, "Waking Ned Devine." The popularity of that film boosted Lynch's career, and she soon landed the lead in "Nora," the tale of a hotel maid who embarks on a complicated relationship with renowned Irish author James Joyce, played by Ewan McGregor. Amidst her ongoing stage work, Lynch continued to work frequently in film and television, delivering critically acclaimed performances for the Irish dramatic series "Any Time Now," and a gritty feature about urban life in Scotland, "16 Years of Alcohol." Americans have seen her in smaller parts, such as a lady-in-waiting in "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" and an unfortunate prostitute who crosses paths with Jack the Ripper in "From Hell."
