Snippet 7

The Glaslough and Monaghan star of the TV screen, Charlene McKenna, was spending Christmas with her parents and family in Glaslough. This cheerful, sprightly and spirited actress is now a household name from her appearances in RAW, Pure Mule, Whistleblower and many other starring roles. On Sunday January 9th 2011 RAW 3 comes on our screens and no doubt she will capture hearts and minds with her performances in this series too.
Unfortunately Charlene picked up the ‘Flu bug that is going around and this fouled up her Christmas break somewhat but she recovered with the TLC of her Mum and Dad. I had arranged an interview with her over the Christmas but we ended up chatting over the phone.
Below are the questions I put to her and her response can be heard by clicking on the photo under the various questions.

Thanks to Charlene for giving the time for this interview. I hope that you will all tune in to RTE 1 on Sunday nights for this series of RAW 3. I guarantee you will enjoy it.
I wish Charlene every success in the future and I believe that a blockbuster film in Hollywood could be on the cards soon. What ever is in store for her I am sure that Charlene will always remain the unassuming lassie from Glaslough, as she has not allowed her fame to change her.
