Lucy Liu has revealed she signed up for TV show Elementary because she wanted to work with Jonny Lee Miller.
The Charlie's Angels actress plays Joan Watson in the series, shown in the UK on Sky Living HD, while British star Jonny plays Sherlock Holmes, and she confessed that although she had her doubts about the part she signed up because she was so keen to work with the actor, reported Us Weekly.
"I know it sounds crazy, but I was really looking forward to doing a comedy. But one of the main attractions was Jonny," Lucy told Emmy magazine.
Jonny added that the pair have a great working relationship - although he joked that he has to explain his humour to the American star.
"If you're going to spend a lot of time with someone, you really need to be able to get on with them," he said.
"It's nice because we have a very similar sense of humour. Still, you usually have to explain jokes to her about three or four times."
