Victoria Smurfit has spoken for the first time of her sense of fulfilment and happiness after finding new career success and a new love.

The Dublin actress has become a huge star in the US thanks to her scene-stealing role as Cruella De Vil in the hit fantasy TV series, Once Upon a Time. 

And she said she’s in “a good place” after finding love again. She’s dating filmmaker Alistair Ramsden, more than a year after she and ex-husband Doug Baxter separated. They remain on good terms.

“Life is good, the kids are happy and healthy. I’ve got a lovely man in my life,” she said. “It’s been a bizarre couple of years. But the family situation is settled, and everyone is happy and chucking on.”
