Actress Geraldine Hughes is visiting WIMPS next week, and we’re very excited!

Geraldine has starred on Broadway in New York and London’s West End. She has appeared in films with Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino) and Sylvester Stallone (Rocky Balboa). She wrote and performed a one-woman show entitled Belfast Blues in New York City and acted in several US television dramas.

Born in west Belfast, she won a private scholarship and attended university in America. 

Last year, WIMPS Coach Aoibheann Fitzpatrick interviewed Geraldine in New York where they talked about the importance of the arts for young people and the influence of American culture.
