Irish American actress Caitlin Fitzgerald is bringing 2016 to a rousing end. Aside from starring in season four of the ongoing Showtime series Masters of Sex, she appears in three films as the year comes to a close. In December, Fitzgerald – whose grandfather, Desmond Fitzgerald, was a top official with the CIA under President John F. Kennedy – stars alongside Mackenzie Davis in the psychological thriller Always Shine. The flick garnered positive buzz at numerous festivals, with Variety saying director Sophia Takal took on “Tinseltown misogyny and the toxic rivalry between friends, but that’s mere prelude to a gonzo meta-fiction that deconstructs itself nearly to death.”

You can also see Fitzgerald in the film Mercy (currently streaming on Netflix) as well as in This is Your Death, starring Josh Duhamel and Famke Janssen. ♦
