Having made an impression on the independent film circuit, blossoming starlet Kelly Murtagh is poised for fanboy adoration as she’s appearing in the hard-hitting Season 3 premiere episode of “Preacher”. She plays Barb O’Hare, the mother of Tulip O’ Hare in a flashback sequence from her childhood where she lies in limbo being resurrected from the dead. You’ll love Kelly’s smoky Southern drawl and her matter-of fact stance as her realist yet saucy mother who explains to her daughter about Tulip’s absentee father Jake. Sharing screen time with the acclaimed Ruth Negga, Kelly is herself already an award-winning actress and last year proved her mettle as the leading lady of the familial drama “Don’t Come Around Here”. Expect this willowy blonde beauty to garner our avidity in no time.
There’s also a recurring role on the upcoming man on a mission to Mars series “The First” which will see her rubbing shoulders with Sean Penn, Melissa George and Natascha McElhone. She’s indeed shooting for the stars!
