ACTRESS Rosie Murray is overjoyed with the two recent Actor Boy Awards nominations for her one-woman production Slice of Life.

The nods are for Best Revue and Best Actress in a Lead Role for the play, which was taken to the stage last year.

Murray took to social media to express her joy at the latest commendations.

“More 'overwhelmation' (had to coin that one) SLICE OF LIFE'S 2017 Actor Boy nominations! Eye dem swell up! Father God again!...Like a card game, life deals you good and not so great 'hands'; it's just how you play that will keep you in the game! Sharing a slice or two of my life in 2017 has 'plaaayed'. Thank you, Owen Blakka Ellis, for believing; Nadean Rawlins for the vision! Tesfa Edwards for the audio and visuals. My son Phillip Andrew for motivation and support. Actor Boy judges, my sincere gratitude to you all for your nods of approval with your two nominations of SLICE OF LIFE! Always, giving thanks to the Almighty God for all he has done!” she stated on Facebook.

The Actor Boy Awards recognises excellence in local theatre. Murray won her first Actor Boy trophy a year ago for her portrayal of a mute in David Tulloch's Not My Child.

She is also giving thanks for the overwhelming level of support she received following a heart attack while at an event at a friend's house in December. Her son subsequently launched a crowdfunding initiative to offset her medical bills, which has been well supported. She underwent an angioplasty and is at home resting.

“The rigid diet, the regular doctor's visits, physiotherapist, gym, etc, but I am giving thanks for the blessings and support,” she added.
