Orla Fitzgerald (born 1978) is an Irish actress who lives and works in London and focuses on the stage.[1]

She received two nominations for Best Supporting Actress and Best Breakthrough Artist at the fourth annual Irish Film and Television Awards for her work as Sinéad Ní Shúilleabháin in The Wind That Shakes the Barley. Fitzgerald was nominated best actress in the Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards (2013) for the role of Clare in "Digging for Fire", written by Declan Hughes and directed by Matt Torney for Rough Magic Theatre Company.[2]

Training and early career[edit]

Fitzgerald took drama classes in Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, placed there by her mother who thought she was perhaps too shy. “It was a 90-minute workshop on a Saturday morning, where we did improv and plays. It was all about fun and being creative and I loved it,” the actress has said.[1]
