Thirty-one-year-old Molly was born in Cardiff but grew up in North Berwick, attending Law Primary School and North Berwick High School before following her acting dream by studying at Telford College and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Molly told the Courier: “I’m so pleased that The Rig has been green lit for a second season.

"The story was definitely left in a way that kept the door very much open for a second season.

"I’m buzzing for the writer David Macpherson, and the whole creative team, crew and cast that we get to go back to FirstStage studios to film again.

"I can’t wait to find out where the story goes and how the characters develop. Very excited to get started!”
