How old is Agnes O’Casey?

Agnes O’Casey (real name Agnes Kenig) is currently 25 years old, per reports. We did some digging and found that Agnes was born on 23 December, thanks to a birthday Instagram post shared by her sister.

If Agnes celebrates her birthday on 23 December, that means she will have been born in 1995. She will be turning 26 years old later this year.

A late December birthday makes Agnes O’Casey a Capricorn.

What age did Agnes start acting?

Theatre is in Agnes O’Casey’s blood, as she is the great-granddaughter of celebrated dramatist Sean O’Casey. Early experiences going to theatre convinced Agnes that it was the career path for her.

Her formal training began at Dublin’s prestigious Lir Academy. Agnes graduated in summer 2020, when she would’ve been 24 years old. This means that she started her three year Bachelor’s in Acting course when she was approximately 21 years old.

Ridley Road is Agnes’ first onscreen acting role. “This is my first job and the idea that my first job would be so perfectly in line with everything I believe in is a dream come true,” Agnes said
