Atwell holds her own with the guys

Hayley Atwell has revealed she loved "mucking in" with tough guys Ray Winstone and Plan B on The Sweeney.

The Captain America actress stars in the big-screen adaptation of the 1970s cop show, alongside the Hugo star and rapper Plan B, whose real name is Ben Drew.

Hayley said: "It was a real dream to work with Ray Winstone - he's a real man's man, but also a real gentleman as well so it was great fun."

The 29-year-old actress plays tomboy cop Nancy, who she thinks will represent modern women in the adaptation of the macho cult show which originally starred John Thaw and Dennis Waterman.

Hayley said: "She's a very crass character - she swears a lot but she she hold her own with the guys, which is something that I like to do, I seem to be doing it a lot these days.

"She's feminine but also quite tomboyish. She's tough. She's can muck in with the guys, so she's a very modern-day woman."
