Word has it that John le Carre is writing another tale in his Night Manager spy thriller series which will be on TV screens next year. I hope actress Liz Debicki (26), who was a sizzling presence on screen in the first series just ended, returns as the beautiful Jed.

Liz was born in Paris, France, to a Polish father and an Australian mother of Irish descent - from Ballymena, I understand. Her parents were both ballet dancers. When she was five, the family moved to Melbourne. The eldest of three, she has a younger sister and a brother.

She was a dancer until deciding to switch to theatre and in August 2009 she was the recipient of a Richard Pratt Bursary, for outstanding acting students in their second year of training.

Never mind the young lady's good looks and acting talent in the first Night Manager, her gowns and dresses earned her columns in some newspapers.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if she is cast in the next Bond film with her Night Manager co-star Tom Hiddleston as 007.
