Sean Hegarty & Diona Doherty

Newly engaged comedy duo, Sean Hegarty and Diona Doherty, are quite the couple to be around; think essential dinner party guests – the kind that shun polite chat. 

You’ll find him doubling up as the increasingly adored Rodney #itsnotgood and Diona boasts a career that spans Ireland and Britain’s Next Top Model to performing live at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival alongside acting roles.

Here they delve into the Dialogue…

Presently working on…

(S) Trying to get my kids to sit still at the dinner table during meal times.

Home life (location)…

(S) Yeah, I’m not falling for that one. Next you’ll be asking for my mother’s maiden name and the first concert I attended.

I live in….

(D) Currently Craigavon. Stop it, I know, it’s fancy! However I hail from Derry, and have clung on to my accent since I moved away 8 years ago. It will never soften…I hope. We lived in Belfast for a few years too and loved it but I think as we have gotten a bit older we are in search of our forever home and I think it involves a little less city. I loved being able to walk everywhere so much handier in Belfast though, you were never too far from anything really and 10pm visits to a coffee shop were the norm.

I would describe my style as….

(S) David Beckham if he never made it as a footballer.

My favourite shop is….

(S) John Bi-shop.

On my wish list is…

(D) a honeymoon to The Maldives with a pit stop in Sri Lanka. Did you hear that Sean? We are getting married this year and I am more concerned about the holiday after.

My most recent purchase was…

(D) suits for our wedding. Not for me of course, I plan on going all out with the Big White Dress!

I’m inspired by…

(D) lots of things. Mainly as an actor though it’s watching films or going to see theatre. I can watch a brilliant performance and it makes me want to grow as a performer. Or even if it’s a bit rubbish then it inspires me to do better than that.

My five desert island essentials would be…

(D) Red sauce, because even seaweed and wild boar are yucky without it. I know Sean would bring his moisturizer (sorry) and I would also bring sugary sweets. Then I’d be a clever duck and bring a boat and a sailor so I can leave when I’m fed up.

My guilty pleasure is…

(D) reality TV. I’m too embarrassed to even tell you what ones but I love people watching and I do love to see how the other half live. Even if I think they’re all idiots!

The best piece of advice I’ve ever received is…

(S) People in grass houses, shouldn’t throw lawnmowers.

My favourite holiday destination is…

(S) I’ve only ever been on one sun holiday so, by denomination, I’m gonna have to go with that. Majorca! I’d love to go to Portadown though…someday!

My best gift…

(D) that I have received was my engagement ring. And it DIDN’T come from a lucky bag. BOOM!
