Samantha Mumba may be forever known as one of the Ireland’s pop princesses but she has added yet another exciting TV credit to her CV.
The US-based singer, 40, has been cast in the Irish TV show Harry Wild which also stars Jane Seymour.
The Gotta Tell You hitmaker flew back from LA with her daughter Sage to film scenes for the show.
Before getting in front of the camera she enjoyed a night out with the team as they hit the Teppanyaki restaurant Chai Yo on Baggot Street in Dublin for some grub.
It was an early start for her the next day as she shared a video travelling to the location while it was still very much dark outside.
She didn’t seem fazed by the early rise and posting a picture from herself in her changing room she looked as radiant as ever.
She showed off her dazzling engagement ring in the picture and a script was seen on the table in front of her.
The crime series sees 71-year-old former Bond girl Jane Seymour play retired English professor Harriet (Harry) who embarks on a career of amateur sleuthing.
Samantha has become the latest Irish star to join the cast.
Her fans on social media reacted to her telly news with glee when she made the annoucement as many said they ‘can’t wait’ to tune in.
Posting a picture from outside her trailer, the Baby Come On Over star revealed her character’s name was Paula Kenny.
‘Day one done!!🎬 #HarryWild,’ she wrote at the time.
While her fans will no doubt be delighted to see her back on TV screens, the mum-of-one has been serving up all the hits as a radio DJ for 98FM.
She hosts Dublin’s Good Time Anthems on the radio station every Saturday.
Recently, she lent her pop prowess to help judge RTÉ’s Last Singer Standing alongside Nicky Byrne.
Samantha has paved her own path and found her groove in Irish showbiz following a number of wild years in LA where she even dated famous American rapper Sisqó at one stage.
The pop star married her police officer beau Torray Scales in February 2012 and they welcomed their daughter Sage in March 2015, who is seven. She is also step-mum to her partner’s son Mason.
The first season, which also starred Amy Huberman, went down a storm with Irish viewers.
We wonder if she’ll become BFF’s with Jane, like Amy Huberman did previously. The duo struck up a firm friendship when they worked together on the first season in 2021.
The Live and Let Die star even vowed she would return for a night on the tiles with Amy at Coppers!
When they were filming last summer, The Clinic star admitted that originally she didn’t want to leave her trailer as the 71-year-old looked so fabulous, she felt self-conscious.
