Camille O'Sullivan on how shyness and anxiety can make you do strange things onstage

It's a great episode of the show, make sure to check it out in full below.

Actress and singer Camille O'Sullivan was this week's guest on Ireland Unfiltered with Dion Fanning.

She discussed how her life had changed from her near fatal car crash, how the Irish have a certain type of madness about them, acting as a photographer for her partner Aidan Gillen and also how her shyness comes out in strange ways.

Speaking on the show, she revealed that she could never understand how Dolores O'Riordan performed which such shyness.

You can read what she had to say below.

Camille: That’s the social anxiety of shyness. You know you feel kind of embarrassed by what you say. I get that from gigs, I come off going ‘Oh, what did I say?’ because I’m in it I don’t even know I was dancing and people would say, ‘You’re a great dancer’ and you’re like, ‘What?!’ I believe in giving yourself over but you come off going, ‘Lord Jesus, what did I do?’

You know I remember seeing someone like Dolores O’Riordan when she did a play, or not a play, a show when we were in art college our first year and she had her back to the audience. I always thought, how did she turn around and do what she did because she had such shyness?
