There is a small picture from a past awards show and the following quote:
"When it rains at home in Utah, I get homesick for Ireland. I'll put on some Clannad. Their haunting music transports me to the misty moors and evokes the more romantic notion of our country." Roma Downey, who is scheduled to be grand marshal of the St. Patrick's Day parade in Washington, D.C., this year. Raised in Derry, Northern Ireland, the actress is a descendant of the O'Dunadhaigh clan, whose members were considered to be as strong as a dun, or a brick house.

****Note from the webmistress Anna: Actually the Irish word dun was considered to mean something like a fort or fortress. I suppose "brick house" could be used as another meaning for the word, but it isn't the traditional meaning.

Roma Downey

With her heavenly complexion and cascading auburn hair, Touched by an Angel's Roma Downey certainly looks divine. But John Dye, who plays fellow angel Andrew, says that his Irish-born costar has the soul of an angel as well. "It's her glow that makes her really beautiful,"says Dye. "I love the way that when she laughs at something, she sort of looks out of the top of her eyes at you. She still has that little girl demureness. "Actually, Downey, 34, recalls being "a rather chubby little girl," but she credits her mother, who died when she was 10, with making her feel pretty. "I have fond memories of my mom brushing my hair 100 strokes every night and braiding it so it wouldn't knot up," she says. "She would tell me how special and wonderful I was." Now, with an infant daughter of her own, 10-month-old Reilly Marie, Downey has little time to pamper herself. The 5'4" actress, who is married to director David Anspaugh, takes catnaps in her trailer and drinks lots of water to chase the dark circles from under her eyes. And she credits the show's lighting crew with making her look out of this world on TV. "We have what we call an angel light for the scene where I reveal that I am an angel," she says. "It really punches up the red in my hair. Whenever I have a special occasion, I ask, `Can you guys show up with the angel light?'"
