Not sure, but I doubt it. She's Albanian I think, so I wouldn't expect an Irish name.


Edit: My bad, she is Macedonian, and her real name was Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu

[Edited 2009-08-28 09:18:09]


Edit 2: She was Macedonian born but with an Albanian name, it appears. But the woman in question (O'Brien) is Dusty Springfield.

Martin Sheen. Charlie's real first name is Carlos, I think

- It is, and Carlos went by Charlie but Charlie's brother kept his real name, Emilio. He uses his given name. Martin and his wife have two other children but I do not know if they are/were in the business or not.
