Anna Friel facts

  • In 2001, Anna and then-husband David Thewlis received 50 grand to appear in a Mulberry advert.

  • In the BBC’s racy 1998 series The Tribe, Anna had nudey threesome sex scene that drew hundreds of complaints and made millions of tellies melt.

Why we love Anna Friel

It’s safe to say that thousands of men of a certain age can remember where they were when Beth leaned in for that lesbian kiss on Brookside. These days, gay-lady kisses are 10-a-penny on TV, but back in 1994 that kiss was a big, big deal. And it was made all the more memorable by the fact that the lady doing the kissing was Miss Friel – one of the fittest, freckliest and feistiest actresses ever to grace British telly screens.

After Brookside, Anna graduated to movies, appearing in films such as Land Of The Lost (with Will Ferrell), Limitless (with Bradley Cooper) and Rogue Trader (with Ewan McGregor). She also managed to crack the lucrative British-star-on-big-budget-US-show market, with the starring role in cult US “dramedy” Pushing Daisies. Not bad for a girl who once buried her dad under the patio.
