Calverstown's Susie is top child actor

Calverstown child actor Susie Power (11) has won the World Champion Actor title in the Junior Age grade of the World Championship of Performing Arts in Hollywood, writes Brian Byrne.

Part of a 14-strong Irish team aged 10-19 years, Susie used the stage name Susie Power for the event, competing against hundreds of other hopefuls in her category to make the finals against just two other contenders in the Long Beach Performing Arts Centre.

Susie has been acting under the guidance of Maureen V Ward's Talented Kids agency for many years, and her portfolio of parts includes acting in short films such as Sophie at the Races (2014), Beirt Le Cheile (2013), the feature film Dark Touch (2013) and the Little Crackers (2012) TV series. She also played the part of Eleanor Daly in Fair City in 2008.

A film in which she most recently acted, A Date for Mad Mary, is currently in post production.
