I quit catwalk-Caitriona

Caitriona started her career sashaying down the catwalk at fashion shows in London,New York and Paris. And now Monaghan model-turned-actress Caitriona Balfe is muscling up with Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Caitriona stars alongside the Hollywood beefcakes in an upcoming thriller.She stars in Now You See Me,which hits Irish cinemas on July 3,and shares the screen with Hollywood heavyweights Morgan Freeman,Jesse Eisenberg,Michael Caine and James Franco"s little brother Dave. The chatty actress admits feeling a little intimidated on set. "It"s very much the beginning for me so I"m just taking baby steps at the moment". "I am acting alongside some great people. There was one day we were on stage next to Morgan Freeman and Woody Harrelson and you do just think "Oh wow"." And Caitriona turned to acting stalwart Michael Caine for solid acting advice. "The secret to being a good actor is looking like you have something extremely important,even if you"re just sitting there." The talented brunette landing such high profile gigs has helped her acting career. "I think every credit you get and every film you have your name attached to makes things a little bit easier. It definitely opens doors up but it"s still a grind". Caitriona encourages other Irish models,wannabes and aspiring actresses to take a leap of faith and follow their dreams.
