'Penny Dreadful' Actress Sarah Greene to Be Honored at Oscar Wilde Awards
The Irish actress will be saluted alongside James Corden and the band Snow Patrol on Feb. 25 at the awards-season event.
Irish actress Sarah Greene, who appears on the Showtime gothic horror drama Penny Dreadful, has joined the list of honorees at the 11th annual Oscar Wilde Awards.
James Corden, the host of CBS’ The Late Late Show, and Northern Ireland rockers Snow Patrol also will be saluted Feb. 25 at the awards-season event that takes place at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production offices in Santa Monica.
Greene received Tony and Laurence Olivier award nominations for her performance opposite Daniel Radcliffe in Martin McDonagh’s play The Cripple of Inishmaan. She’s also set to appear in the upcoming SundanceTV limited series Rebellion.
The nonprofit U.S.-Ireland Alliance created the Oscar Wilde bash to recognize the contributions of the Irish in film and on television.
"In 2010, we honored Saoirse Ronan when she was maybe not quite a household name, but it was obvious she would be. Sarah is in a similar position, where all I can say is watch this space!” U.S.-Ireland Alliance founder Trina Vargo said in a statement. “She already has an impressive career in theater and television in Ireland and the U.K., and she is now deservedly being noticed in the U.S.”
A native of Cork, Ireland, Greene plays Hecate Poole, a practitioner of the dark arts, on Penny Dreadful, created by John Logan, an Oscar Wilde honoree in 2012. She has appeared in such films as The Guard (2011), Noble (2014) and Burnt (2015).
Irish singer Roisin O also will perform at the event.
