Rosie Molloy Gives Up Everything cast

BAFTA-award winning actress Sheridan Smith plays the title role in Rosie Molloy Give Up Everything and she is joined by cast including Pauline McLynn as Win Molloy, Ardal O'Hanlon as Conall Molloy, Tareq Al-Jeddal as Victor, Martin Delaney as Robert, Richard Lumsden, Lewis Reeves as Joey, Leah MacRae as Monica, Oliver Wellington as Nico, Stevie Martin as Mel, Adelle Leonce as Ruby, Kevin Golding as Father Crosbie and Jeff Mirza as Dr Sando.

Speaking about taking on the lead, Sheridan said in an interview with What to Watch, "Rosie is a very complicated character. She's fun, she's wild, chaotic and a lot of fun to play!"

She later revealed to The Sun, that she had to neck a whole bottle of fake wine. "The scene started and I think the production team thought I was going to say, ‘Cut, I can’t drink all that’. Anyway, I didn’t.

"They all had to wait for ages as I decked this whole bottle of pretend wine in one take. When I finished, I had to deliver the line, ‘I’m good, thanks!’ all bloated like a balloon."

Sheridan admitted she struggled to “breathe” after necking the bottle and even ruined her appetite afterwards.

“I could hardly breathe after downing it all. Afterwards, the whole crew gave me this big round of applause but I felt so sick. I didn’t even eat my lunch,” she added.

Ardal O'Hanlon who's best-known for his role in Father Ted, said of working with Sheridan, "I play her dad, we have a pretty close relationship, we kind of consider each other best friends and we drink together and we sort of enable each other but it's really all about Rosie, she's pretty much in every scene, it's a tour de force performance from Sheridan - it's incredible.

It was Ardal's first-time working with the actress, he added, "It's the first time I've met Sheridan and worked with her, she is an absolute dream, incredible, not just professional, she is such a brilliant actor, so natural and instinctive and a joy to work with."

Meanwhile Pauline added, "It was a joy to do because you don’t often get a set of scripts that are so crackingly brilliant. Not just funny, but also really incredibly moving. Sheridan is nothing less than magnificent – it was the role she was always meant to play. You’re in for a treat."
