Abby Green was born in London, but soon afterwards moved back to her mother's native Dublin. She grew up there, going to boarding school just outside the city.
After final school exams, and on receiving a place in Sussex University to do social anthropology, Abby took a year out to make some money. In that year, completely by chance, she got a job as an assistant director on a short film. By the time the year was up and she was due to take her place in college, she was working on Braveheart! So another year was deferred...then another...then another. College fell by the wayside and she pursued a career in film and TV in Ireland. She's very lucky to have had the opportunity to experience working abroad over the years on different films in Malaysia, Slovakia and Namibia.
