Foy: Greig irked by mum casting!

Claire Foy has joked that her White Heat co-star Tamsin Greig was irked by being cast as her mum.

The two play mother and daughter in the new BBC Two drama, written by Paula Milne, and 27-year-old Claire said Tamsin, 45, pretended to be annoyed by the casting.

She joked: "I think Tamsin was slightly annoyed she's playing my mum seeing as she's only about 10 years older than me. I'm playing down in age and she's playing up in age so it's alright."

Claire said the Green Wing actress was "the best mum ever", and added she had always wanted to work with her.

"I remember seeing her in the Seagull just before going to drama school and I was slightly obsessed with her," she said.

:: White Heat Begins on Thursday, March 8 on BBC Two.
