Pippa O’Connor Lands Role In Big Budget Hollywood Movie

It looks like the popular Irish businesswoman and blogger is eying up a potential acting career in Hollywood.

The Kildare native, who is also a published author, has landed a role in a new animated movie starring David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale, WWE superstar John Cena, and Saturday Night Life comedian Kate McKinnon.

"They contacted me and they were like, would you like to have a speaking part in a movie?" she reveals. "And I was like, ‘yes!’"

Speaking in an interview with Irish Country Magazine, she adds: “I’ve been telling my sister and my husband and they were like, ‘oh my God.’

"So it was really fun to go London and stand in a very fancy booth and do my lines. Really, anything is possible.”

The new animated movie is based on Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson’s children’s book 'The Story of Ferdinand', which is about a Spanish bullfighter.

It tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Set in Spain, Ferdinand proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover.

Here's the trailer...
