Eileen Pollock (born 18 May 1947[1]) is a Northern Irish actress.


She is probably best known for playing the part of 'Lilo' Lill in Carla Lane's comedy Bread, she has also appeared in such productions as Play for Tomorrow (1982), After You've Gone (1984), Far and Away (1992), and most recently, Wild About Harry, in 2000.

Around the time she was being recognised for her part in Bread, she was engaged by a Walsall theatre company called Theatre Foundry for their production of Mother Courage and her Children.

Other productions in which she has had roles include The Government Inspector, Women on the verge of HRT by Marie Jones, Three Sisters (translation by Brian Friel) as well as Friel's Dancing at Lughnasa. She starred in the film version of Frank McCourt's book, Angela's Ashes. Pollock played "Molly", the landlady in Far and Away (1992) with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, director Ron Howard. She appeared in an episode of the UK serial Taggart.

In 2009, she appeared on The Justin Lee Collins Show, as a blast from the past.
