Amy Huberman's latest role required her to wear a "very sexy" prosthetic bump.
The Irish actress, known for playing a receptionist in RTE drama The Clinic, stars in Comedy Central's Threesome, playing a girl called Alice who gets pregnant after a threesome with her boyfriend and her gay best friend.
Cue the 32-year-old, who is married to Irish rugby captain Brian O'Driscoll, having to wear various sizes of prosthetic baby bump throughout filming.
"It's a beautiful-looking number, kind of like a flesh-coloured swimsuit with padding in it, very sexy," she said.
"Depending on location, you might change bumps three times in a day, as you'll be in different stages of pregnancy.
"You kind of get used to it, it's comforting having this thing on. But it's not heavy, so you have to try and play the heaviness."
It helped that all her best friends just happened to be pregnant in the past year. "I've watched my mates going through the hormonal ranges and hunger and tears over what your body's doing," she said.
"I think it's difficult for Alice, because she's not a maternal person, so it's like having an alien invading her body and her world. Plus she lives with two blokes, but they're good [at parenting] actually, probably better than her."
