Lucy Sheehan


In the late 80s Lucy Sheehan was everywhere: throwing tomatoes at naked men in movie Zilch!, fending off a badly injured Harry Sinclair in Front Lawn classic The Lounge Bar, and winning raves after starring in Talkback. The NZ Drama School grad and one-time acting teacher also provided a memorable turn as the forgotten girlfriend in A Fitting Tribute, and has done stints on Shortland Street, and as a Radio NZ voice artist.

On-screen for most of the film, Lucy Sheehan turns in a warm, convincing performance as the newly-nominated talkback host who has her own dramas to live through and her own story to tell. Listener review of Talkback, 11 June 1988
