Newbies of Hollywood: Caitriona Balfe

Born and raised in a sleepy Irish village, Caitriona Balfe [pronounced like katrina] had just started studying acting in college when she was discovered by a modelling scout while collecting for charity outside a shopping center. After a brief stint posing in Dublin, she headed to Paris, where she walked the runway for brands like Chanel, Givenchy and Victoria's Secret, becoming known as Ireland's first supermodel.

The 38-years-old actress from Dublin, Ireland is slowly making a name for herself in Hollywood, so let's take a look at her career.

Balfe debuted in J. J. Abram's Super 8 (2011), and she continued to appear in A-list movies such as Now You See Me (2013), and Escape Plan (2013).

She is also big on little screen, making three successful television series: The Beauty Inside (2012), H+ (2012-2013) and Outlander (2014-2017).

Caitriona Balfe's latest work include Jodie Foster's Money Monster (2016) and the upcoming biopic Ford v. Ferrari (2019).
