The Hollywood star from Beechwood Avenue in Derry has enjoyed decades of success on American television.

Now a producer, Roma Downey is best known for her role as Monica in ‘Touched By An Angel.’

The Hollywood star’s TV-producer husband, Mark Burnett, can also count himself as among those followed by Mr. Trump on Twitter.

Mr. Burnett, the creator and executive producer of The Apprentice, said in October, however, he was not backing Donald Trump.

“Given all of the false media reports, I feel compelled to clarify a few points. I am not now and have never been a supporter of Donald Trump’s candidacy. I am NOT “Pro-Trump,” Burnett said in a statement.

“Further, my wife and I reject the hatred, division and misogyny that has been a very unfortunate part of his campaign.”

Among the others followed on Twitter by Mr. Trump are Vice-President elect, Mike Pence, and Trump family members.
