Egerton: I won't do full nudity

Tamsin Egerton stars in The Look Of Love

Tamsin Egerton has said appearing fully naked on screen is on her list of no nos.

The 24-year-old St Trinian's actress plays porn star Fiona Richmond in Michael Winterbottom's new film The Look Of Love, about Soho porn baron Paul Raymond.

Tamsin told the Daily Mail: "I've had to put my foot down. Full-frontals I won't do. Sexual acts I won't do.

"There are things on a list and there are certain things in the script that I've spoken to Michael about."

Steve Coogan stars in the film as Raymond, Anna Friel plays his wronged wife Jean, a former show dancer, Imogen Poots plays his daughter Debbie and Tamsin plays vicar's daughter gone bad Fiona, who was a performer in his films and his clubs, as well as his mistress.

Tamsin knew the role would involve some nudity when she signed up to it.

She said: "Fiona did take her clothes off, and part of the performance has to reflect that. You're always going to be wary, but Michael was a gentleman."

The actress added: "For me, it was going from teenage actress to playing a grown-up role: my gateway to showing more serious work.

"I communicated with Fiona via email, asking lots of questions. She kept saying this happened or that didn't happen, and I had to explain that I was playing the essence of her and I wanted to get that right."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
