Anna Friel pumps up a flat tyre in sexy black stockings and killer heels for a new TV role
Anna Friel has won critical acclaim for her acting skills, but in these shots all eyes are on her fabulous legs which were clad in black stockings and very, very high heels. Anna donned ripped stockings and high heels for her new role as a sexy dancer – who happens to be pretty handy with cars.
These scenes for television drama The Street show Friel as a mother-of-two whose vehicle breaks down on her way home from work.
Wearing just suspenders, towering shoes and a baggy zip-up top, she has to jump out of the car and pump up her flat tyre. She manages the wheel repair in the pouring rain – one of the reasons we have not seen her on our screens either big or small over the past year is because she has been attending a car maintenance course!!!!!! She knew it would come in useful at some point in her life!
Her moment in the show has her playing a woman who works two jobs - by day, she toils away at a B&Q store, by night she dances in a club - to earn enough money to send her children to a decent school.
Friel’s role in the BBC1 drama, written by Jimmy McGovern, comes 17 years after she found fame in Brookside. Whilst in Brookside she was involved in s atory line that flashed the first lesbian kiss in soap history now they all seem to be doing it, Emmerdale being the latest lesbian pairing and they have done it in the past as well.
Brookside and the controversial lesbian kiss
The actress, 32, since decamped to Los Angeles to star in ABC television show Pushing Daisies.
But, despite winning praise for her role as a girl brought back to life by her childhood sweetheart, the programme as now been axed in the US. Which is a real shame! Friel, who has a three-year-old daughter, Gracie, with long-term boyfriend David Thewlis, will not be far from our screens for long. She is to appear in adventure comedy film Land Of the Lost with Will Ferrell later this year.
A final note has Anna forgotten her underwear?
