Rosanna Davison Lands Lead Role in Irish Film

Ireland's Evening Herald newspaper today features a cover story revealing former Miss World (2003) Rosanna Davison, the daughter of legendary songsmith Chris de Burgh, as having landed the female lead role in VENA, a feature film directed by renowned photographer/director Kevin Abosch and co-starring Richard Wall (star of the Oscar-nominated short Whatever Turns You On).

Davison, a model and regular fixture on the Dublin social scene is a familiar face to those who read the gossip rags. In VENA, she plays the role of a romance novelist whose relationship with a botanist played by Wall, is strained by his obsessive research into plant consciousness. Aparently, he is more into plants than he is into her. Science-fiction it seems. In the Herald article director Abosch gushes about her "natural talent" and ability to take direction so well. VENA, was shot entirely in Dublin and marks an exciting new turn for Irish film. From what we gather, it seems to be an artistic, sci-fi film with international appeal. It will surely play well on the festival circuit and perhaps launch the career of one of Ireland's most beautiful women. - Click on the image above to read the Herald article.
