Scots actress Sharon Rooney has joked that her mum is helping to keep Disney afloat after bagging a role in Dumbo.
The talented Two Doors Down and My Mad Fat Diary star can be seen on the silver screen alongside Michael Keaton, Eva Green and Danny DeVito in Tim Burton's live-action remake of the 1941 classic.
The 30-year-old, who stars as Miss Atlantis in the film, told STV News that her mum has been splashing the cash on merchandise.

She joked: "My wee mum is absolutely in a Dumbo bubble.
"She has every piece of merchandise going. She's keeping Disney afloat because she's buying everything."
The Glasgow actress was over the moon to be given the task of recording Baby Mine for the movie.
The song holds a special place in her heart as her late gran would sing it to her.
Rooney said: "In Dumbo I got the mammoth task of recording Baby Mine and that was a song that meant a lot to me and her because she would sing it to me growing up.
"So the fact that she's not here to see that is a bit bittersweet, but when we recorded it - say what you want about anything - but I knew she was there. So that was a magical moment."

Rooney landed the role after impressing director Tim Burton.
She said: "The Dumbo process was like any other process - I had to audition, I got to the recalls. So that was all good.
"My last one was a meeting with Tim Burton and that was incredible."
The actress believes the family film has come along at the right time and hopes audiences find inspiration from the story.
She added: "I think it's exactly what we need right now.
"I think with everything going on, especially today, let yourself go into this new world that we have created and enjoy it, and celebrate differences and just find your courage."
