Crouching over a tin potty relieving yourself on national television may not be everyone’s idea of a good time.
But actress extraordinaire Romola Garai is making a career out of being the most fearless and forward thinking gal on the BBC block.
Her tin-toilet-going days catapulted her from TV extra-dom and small time film success to Queen of the TV drama in earlier this year.
This BBC drama seemed hell bent on replicating the glamour and panache of HBO’s hit vintage drama, Mad Men. The series may have been met with mixed reviews, our Romola pulled off the ambitious Bel Rowley with her trademark combination of intelligent sassiness.
And let’s face it, smoking might be bad for you but Romola looks chuffing cool in this fifties get-up..
She may be ascending through the ranks of the BBC’s drama department but everyone has skeletons in their closet.
And Garai has some real horrors lurking in the back of her armoire.
Who would ever believe that saw the young actress play the role of Cassandra in Dodie Smith’s coming-of-age love story.
It may not have won any awards but critics were kind to Garai’s earnest performance as the young girl.
Coincidentally, this is also where Garai had her first flesh-on-tin encounter when she takes a bath on-screen – and in front of two rather audacious gentleman callers no less!
The young girl can’t believe her luck when her best customer offers to put her up in a plush pad as his own personal sex toy, but Sugar’s emotions take a battering when she finds herself unable to separate business from pleasure.
Garai gave her most critically acclaimed performance to date alongside the likes of Shirley Henderson and Richard E.
