Seána (or Seana) Kerslake is an Irish actress.[1][2] She is best known for playing the lead in Stefanie Preissner's comedy drama Can't Cope, Won't Cope.[3][2] In 2017 she was one of sixteen young actors to be named by Screen International, as a Star of Tomorrow.[1] Given her appearance and talent, she has been dubbed as "The Irish Scarlett Johansson", a moniker rejected by the artist herself.[4][5][6][7][8]

Early life

The middle of three daughters of John and Deirdre Kerslake, Seána was born and raised in Tallaght, South County Dublin.[9][3][4] She went on to study English and music at NUI Maynooth.[10][4]

In 2010, while a student, Kerslake was cast in Kirsten Sheridan's Dollhouse, an unscripted Irish film.[11][4][10][12] Her performance earned her an Irish Film & Television Academy award nomination in 2013.[10][4]

Kerslake studied screen acting at The Factory, Bow Street, Dublin.[13][4][11]

In 2016, Kerslake played the title character in A Date for Mad Mary directed by Darren Thornton.[11][12][9][5][2][4][14] Her performance earned positive reviews from The Hollywood Reporter ("mesmerizing"[15]) and Variety("a barnstorming central performance"[16]). She was awarded the Breakthrough Award by the Dublin Film Critics' Circle, and the Bingham Ray New Talent Award at the Galway Film Fleadh 2016.[4][3][17]

She is set to star in Lee Cronin's The Hole in the Ground, which was shot in 2017.[2]
