Northern Ireland actress Paula Malcomson attributed her success to her “Belfast candidness” and said Hollywood “can always rely on me to speak my heart.”
The Hunger Games star said in an interview with the Times: My honesty was highly appreciated in Hollywood.
“This doesn’t always seem to be the case. People aren’t telling the truth, but they could always expect to say what I thought.
Malcolmson emigrated to New York alone at the age of 19. “I was unhappy in Northern Ireland and lost my loved one,” he said.
“I had to go, I had to start over. I don’t know if it’s well thought out, but I went.
In the early 2000s, Malcolmson considered quitting acting altogether before making a big break as a trixie in the hit Deadwood American Western.
“You dream of a life you can have. Who would I be if I didn’t go?”
“I had the opportunity to do what I needed. It wasn’t the time I longed for. Some were really lucky and some weren’t. I feel like I did.
The East Belfast actress, who left her home for the United States 30 years ago, now spends time between Northern Ireland and Los Angeles, and many of her recent projects have been filmed in Belfast.
“For a long time I only worked in the United States.” I worked non-stop on TV for about 11 years, but there was always a desire to go home, “he said.
“I was no longer a girl who left, but a woman who came back with everything I learned. I have been 30 years.
He believed that he needed to have some success in Tinseltown before returning home, especially since he graduated from school at the age of 15.
“I had to take revenge on those who didn’t believe me,” Malcolmson continued.
“Probably from the school I attended, I felt most unlikely to be okay. I wanted to go home completely.
Malcomson starred in the 2018 science fiction series Krypton, shot in Belfast. That same year, she starred in the BBC miniseries Come Home. This series was also shot in the city.
Second, she played a woman who abandoned her husband and children.
The series focused on family alienation, as well as her latest project, Redemption.
It’s a subject close to his heart, Malcolmson said.
“There is a sense of expulsion, whether self-expulsion or voluntary. I think you have what you always have, your desires,” he added.
In redemption, a 51-year-old actress plays Colette Cunningham. Colette Cunningham is a cold-blooded police officer who traveled from England to Dublin and found her estranged daughter dead.
Malcolmson’s personality supports his investigation into confronting Gardai’s past.
“At first it may seem like a crime fiction, but soon it will be a family-friendly drama,” he said.
“The story has a retrospective nature. She needs to understand the life of her unknown grandson, a daughter without him.
“I smell regret. I think this six episodes of this show is a meditation about mourning.
Redemptions will take place at 9 pm on Easter Monday at Virgin Media One and Virgin Media More.
