‘Secret Diary…’ star Gemma Chan ‘apprehensive’ about sex scenes

Posted Filed under

Following roles in Sherlock and Doctor Who, Chan joins the regular cast of the ITV2 show’s fourth and final series as Charlotte, the arch-nemesis of Belle (Billie Piper).

“I was a bit apprehensive about the possibility of filming those kinds of scenes”, she told CultBox. “But it wasn’t too terrible in the end and everybody, cast and crew, had a great sense of humour when we had to shoot anything which might be uncomfortable.”

She continued: “However, I’m still a bit disturbed at the thought of any of my old law professors from Oxford seeing me in the show. It’s such a far cry from the days when I had to read out my essays in tutorials!”

Secret Diary Of A Call Girl is currently airing on Tuesdays at 10pm.
