Amy Huberman (born 28 March 1979) is an Irish actress and writer who has starred in numerous productions since beginning her career in 2002 on RTÉ's On Homeground. Huberman is married to former Ireland rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll.

Early life[edit]

Huberman grew up in Cabinteely, south Dublin. She is the middle child of three siblings and the only daughter. Her father Harold was born in London to a Polish Jewish family;[1] he married her mother Sandra, a native of County Wexford, in 1974. Huberman was raised in the Catholic faith.[2]

Her brother, Mark Huberman, is also an actor and worked in films such as Boy Eats Girl and on The Clinic as Kieran Miller.[3]

She was educated at Loreto College, Foxrock and she took classes in the Betty Ann Norton Drama School. Following school, she attended University College Dublin (UCD) intending to become a social worker, but when she found the drama society her career took a different direction.[2][clarification needed]

Career[edit]

Huberman is best known in Ireland for her role as Daisy on RTÉ's drama series The Clinic, which aired its seventh and final season in September 2009.[4] She also starred in the BBC television series George Gently[citation needed] and the TV movie Showbands.[5]

Her films include Satellites & Meteorites, directed by Rick Larkin,[6] and A Film with Me in It, also starring Dylan Moran, both released in 2008.

Huberman's first novel, Hello Heartbreak, was published on 2 July 2009.[7]

In 2006, she successfully sued The People newspaper for mistakenly claiming she was nude in the movie Bad Karma (2002; also known as "Hell's Gate").[8][9] The full cast list[10] makes it clear that the nudity is by English actress Zoe Paul.[11]

In 2010, Huberman began work on the first original scripted comedy commissioned by Comedy Central (UK), Threesome created by Tom MacRae. The series began airing on 17 October 2011 and rapidly became on Comedy Central UK's most watched programs. Season 2 aired in late 2012.
