Irish artist Imelda May will host a Dublin party to celebrate her acting debut on August 19th.
The Irish rockabilly artist Imelda May is set to make her film debut with the film Fisherman's Friends: One and All. May is throwing a party in Dublin on opening night of the film so her dad can partake of the festivities.
The official premiere for the movie will take place next week in Cornwall. The artists talked about her plan with ITV saying: "My dad can’t go to it, so I’m going to have a premiere with myself in Ireland on August 19th in Dublin, and I think we are just going to go to the local cinema in full ballgowns and tuxes.”
This is the second Fisherman's Friends film. May joined original cast members like Richard Harrington, Ramon Tikaram, and Joshua Maguire for this addition to the story. The original film was based on the true story of a group of Cornish fishermen-turned-sea-shanty group that signed with Universal Records.
The second film will chart their experience with fame, the release of their second album, and a performance at Glastonbury.
Exciting news!!! ….the soundtrack of Fisherman’s Friends One and All in cinemas on 19th Aug is released on the same day!

May confessed that she fell in love with the experience of acting. She's already lined up another role after this one, though she can't disclose any more information at this time.
When asked about her thoughts on Fisherman's Friends: One and All the artist said: “I thought it was great. This movie, I’m not going to say it’s even better, because the last one was fab. But it’s a perfect progression," the Dubliner told hosts Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes.
“It’s kind of like second album syndrome. You put out an album out and the second one has to match it and top it. There’s proper heart and soul to this movie, which will have you weeping and roaring laughing and going home on a high. It has everything, and I’m not just saying that – I’m not good at lying!"
The London-based singer formed a close-knit community with her fellow cast and crew while filming; "“I felt comfortable, I felt loved, and I loved them. I think that all comes through within the movie, such a supportive bunch of people."
The artist is currently on tour with her band but is excited to be back in Dublin for the premiere.
