Listen on Apple

From Blood Brothers to Shirley Valentine, Educating Rita and so many more Liverpool born actress Eithne Browne has had a fascinating career in theatre and on screen. 

Her story leaping from shop girl to West End Blood Brothers star, stepping in for Barbara Dixon is fabulous.

Eithne went on to star on stage in Shirley Valentine and Educating Rita to name a few and was famed nationally for her five year role as Chrissy Rogers the long running, British soap opera Brookside, going on to appear in TV soap classics such as Coronation Street and Emmerdale. 

Locally in Liverpool, Eithne is adored not only for the joy she has brought to our local theatre goers over the years but for the depth and charisma she brings to each of her onstage characters.

Credits include Twopence to Cross the Mersey, Scouse Trap and Brick Up the Mersey Tunnels the latter which alone played to around 250,000 people. 

At 68 and currently performing in “A Thong for Europe” celebrating Liverpool’s incredible hosting of the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, Eithne is complete proof that age is just a number. Eithne shares a fabulous story and together, we share our mutual passion for theatre and our beloved Liverpool but we also go deeper into the mindset of this incredibly inspirational woman whose energy, vibrancy and passion for life is simply inspiring. 

Her observational humour and quick wit brings many a laugh in our podcast conversation.

Let’s talk on to walk on with Eithne Browne and see where it leads.
