University of Ulster honour finest hour for actress Susan Lynch

By Lisa Smyth

Northern Ireland actress Susan Lynch, who has shared the screen with the likes of Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Ewan McGregor, has said her proudest moment was receiving a doctorate from the University of Ulster five years ago.

The 45-year-old, who hails from Corrinshego outside Newry, attended the establishment, now called the Ulster University, in 2011, where she was awarded a doctorate of arts.

Speaking about the event to the Sunday Express, she said: "I had just had my baby, I was 40, so I was really moved by it. I was very proud. The things that will always stick - it's not the glory and the red carpets - it's the creative stuff."

Susan, who was pictured looking fabulous alongside her interview in the magazine, has a list of television and film credits to her name, not least her award-winning part as author James Joyce's wife in the film Nora.
