Freema’s on Fire
Freema Agyeman is everywhere at the moment – comparatively speaking – with the former star of Doctor Who and Torchwood currently starring in Charles Dickens’ Little Dorrit and popping up in the first episode of Survivors.
Ms Agyeman owes it all to Doctor Who as well, it seems. Forget bloody Crossroads! Recalling her casting in Army of Ghosts, Freema says:
"I probably had six lines, but it’s all about doing the best you possibly can with what you’re given, and then you just do not know where it might lead.
"I always used to think that, but now I live by it. Whatever you’re asked to do, do it to the best of your abilities. It was that small part which started this whole journey.
"I feel like I’m now getting opportunities I might not have had before, that the barriers are falling, and I completely feel that doing Doctor Who has put me in that situation."
With her looks and attitude, there’s nothing to stop Freema going much further than popping up in costume dramas – and take a step up to making movies.
