Lesley Sharp teases Series 2 of ‘Scott & Bailey’

Posted Filed under

Starring Sharp alongside Suranne Jones (Coronation Street), the police drama returns to ITV1 at 9pm on Monday 12th March with eight new episodes.

Sharp reveals: “I like that [writer Sally Wainwright] allows the audience to glimpse Janet at her less than perfect best. As an actress that’s a terrific three dimensional character to play and I get some very juicy things to do.”

She continues: “You get to see a lot of different sides to Janet in this series. Her life at home outside of the way she operates as a policewoman doesn’t run smooth. She makes a complete mess of it, really. But that’s real life, isn’t it? Often the people who seem to be the ones who hold themselves together very well in the workplace are not as successful at home. But they don’t give very much away.”

Exploring the personal and professional lives of Detective Constable Rachel Bailey (Jones) and Detective Constable Janet Scott (Sharp), Series 1 launched in May last year.
