The following is an article from the Belfast Telegraph by Maureen Coleman.

Hollywood star Mischa Barton talks about her Ulster heritage, why she loves the stage and how she’s never been happier.

Mischa Barton is one difficult lady to pin down. Hollywood’s golden girl, who arrived in Dublin for her Irish stage debut several weeks ago, has managed to give me the slip since then. First she was in rehearsals for her role of Shelby Eatenton in Robert Harling’s bitter-sweet play Steel Magnolias, then came almost two weeks of shows at the Gaiety Theatre.

Just as I’ve given up on the elusive star of The Sixth Sense and The OC, she calls me up, late one evening. She’s just arrived in Cork, where the play is running until tonight, and is exhausted, hungry but eager to chat. The fact that her mother Nuala hails from Northern Ireland has contributed to her agreeing to this interview. It also helped that the last time Mischa was here, the Belfast Telegraph splashed her across the front page, when she rocked up at the premiere of Closing The Ring, dressed head to toe in Northern Irish fashion.

“You’ve interviewed me before, right?” she asks me immediately. I tell her I have, back in 2007. She was in Belfast to promote Richard Attenborough’s wartime romance, Closing The Ring, in which she co-starred alongside legendary actress Shirley MacLaine.

“And I was on the front page of the Belfast Telegraph too,” she laughs. “My family would have been so proud of that.”

Hollywood starlet Mischa Barton speaks of strong women and Irish roots ahead of Millennium Forum performance

HOLLYWOOD starlet Mischa Barton will be in town next week when she stars in a production of Steel Magnolias at the Millennium Forum.

The star of Hollywood blockbuster The Sixth Sense and US show The OC, Michsa will be joined by actress Anne Charleston – who played Madge Bishop in the Austraiian soap Neighbours for decades – in the hit play when it tours Ireland.

Directed by Ben Barnes, Steel Magnolias tells the heart-warming story we came to love on film. An enduring tale of love, loss and friendship, we follow the lives of six Southern women who come together in Truvy’s exclusive Beauty Parlour. Packed with 1980s nostalgia and memorable one-liners, Steel Magnolias is the funniest play ever to make you cry.

Ahead of her appearance Mischa, whose grandfather was a professor at Queens University in Belfast, told Newswire she could not wait to see the sights of the northwest and looking up any Derry connections she might have.

How are you finding stage acting as opposed to screen? Which do you prefer?
Theatre is a refreshing change. It is a great muscle to exercise that keeps you feeling sharp and alive.

Stage work can be gruelling, how do you cope with the stresses. How do you relax?
I go to the gym – a lot! I read – I’m currently reading The Dubliners by James Joyce and I just finished Inzanesville by Jo Anne Beard. Music – people don’t know it but  I play three instruments.

What drew you to the character of Shelby in Steel Magnolias? Are you anything like her?
She is one of my favourite female leads of all time. She makes you laugh, she makes you cry and she genuinely likes pink. Need I say more?!  She has a beautiful heart though and having been sick her whole life has a genuine understanding of how lucky she is and just wants to help and care for other people. I’m a sensitive person, so I can relate to that.

Do you believe women can be as delicate as flowers and as tough as steel?
Of course I do! And it’s true, isn’t it?

Your Mum was Irish, do you feel at home here?
Home for me is London and LA but I certainly feel at home here

And your Grandfather taught in Queens University, have you spent any time in the north of Ireland?
Not since I arrived to do Steel Magnolias – we have been so busy with rehearsals and getting into production. I’m really looking forward to visiting the North.

Have you been to Derry before? Any family connections here?
No, not that I’m aware of – but this is Ireland, so you never know!

You looking forward to seeing the sights around Derry and Donegal? Where will you go?
I’m not sure yet, it depends on how busy I am with the show, but the Donegal beaches are beautiful.

Steel Magnolias runs at the Millennium Forum from Monday 1 October to Wednesday 3 October. For further information and ticket booking please click onto….

Just a random update to mention some of the recent stunning photoshoot additions:
Jory Cordy [2010] x1
Jen Carey [2011] x1
Davis Factor x16

I’m not sure of the date for the Davis Factor shoot, so I’ve just guessed 2011 based on Mischa’s hair. If anyone knows for sure, please let me know.

Check out this amazing preview/trailer shared by the second unit cinematographer Øystein Essén Lundstrøm of Mischa’s upcoming film Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain. This film also stars Martin Sheen and Kal Penn and is inspired by the devastating Bhopal gas tragedy which is still affecting people to this day.

It’s unfortunately not letting me embed the video, so visit to view

Here is video of Mischa’s appearance on another Irish TV3 talk-show/panel called Midday where she was out promoting Steel Magnolias. Mischa is actually part of the entire 40 minute program where they talk about several hot topics of the day (akin to The View in the USA). Due to the length of the show, the video has been split into two files.

And here is the link to part two.

So here we go. A new layout! It’s been quite a while since we’ve had a change at the site so it was definitely the right time. As the site has gotten older (almost 9 years now!!!), I’ve moved toward more simple and clean lines over too much design and clutter. I guess that’s why the previous layout remained online for so long. Anyway, I hope you guys like the updated look – especially the new slider function at the top of page which is easily changed as new projects come along.

In case anyone is wondering, there was no custom designer this time, I just went ahead and edited a premium theme called ‘especial’ – so check that out if you’re interested to see the source material. The colours are themed after the Melbourne Cup that Mischa is due to attend in November.

I’ve also tested the layout in Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer and it all appears to look fine. But please do let me know if you’re having issues with anything.
