Tamzin Outhwaite not a fan of HD

Tamzin Outhwaite has recently worked with husband Tom Ellis

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!"

By projecting enthusiasm and confidence, you could land this position in record time. If you're single, you could fall head over heels in love with a wild rebel.More
