Tamzin Outhwaite has said she is not as comfortable seeing herself on screen as she used to be.

The actress, 41, who recently co-starred in an episode of Silent Witness with her husband Tom Ellis, said high-definition put her off.

"As I get a bit older I don't like to see myself on screen quite so much, because everything gets shot in HD and you think to yourself, 'Why don't they just get 16-year-old models?'," she said.

"I love the immediacy of theatre and the feeling you get from staying with a character for a whole evening, but I also love seeing the finished product of a TV show when it's been edited well and put together, because you have no idea when you're doing it what it's going to turn out like."

Tamzin is playing Molly in a film version of Great Expectations, directed by Mike Newell.

"I'm sharing a bed with Ralph Fiennes at one point, and being the housekeeper to Robbie Coltrane, which was a lot of fun," she said.

The actress added of the prospect of working with her husband again: "I think people see me as a drama actress and him as a comedy actor, and at home it's the complete opposite, I've got the jokes and he's got the drama!"
