Her father is Tony Booth, a Liverpudlian actor. Her Catholicism comes 
from her paternal grandmother Vera Booth, who helped bring her up after 
her father left her motehr. Vedra was a fervent Catholic. Cherie grew up 
on Merseyside, where a large proportion of the population has family 
links with Ireland.

For what it's worth, she's related on her father's side to John Wilkes 
Booth, the assassin of Abraham Lincoln.
