SO GLAD I TOOK SEX TRADE ROLE; Actress Aimee-Ffion Keeps Faith with Luther


Byline: RACHEL MAINWARING

WHEN Aimee-Ffion Edwards saw the script for the part of a sex worker in the latest series of Luther, she nearly didn't turn up for the audition.

The 24-year-old actress, from Newport, didn't think she would be right for the role and was worrying about taking her very first flight abroad the next day.

But her London-based agent persuaded Aimee-Ffion to go for it and she's the newest star in the dark police crime thriller series that returns for a second series on Tuesday.

And Aimee-Ffion, currently starring on Broadway in a play called Jerusalem, said she was delighted to land the role opposite Idris Elba, who plays Luther - even if she did have to wear some dodgy costumes on screen.

"Before the audition I read the character breakdown and honestly didn't think I was the right girl for the job," said Aimee-Ffion.

"I was also worried because I was nervous about flying out to America a day later, and I'd never flown before.

"I saw that she was a sex worker in the porn industry and just thought, 'No, I can't do that, can I?' but I love a challenge and decided to go for it.

"I was obviously very excited when I got the role as it's not something I've ever done before. I hadn't actually watched the first series of Luther, but I knew how popular it was, and it's great to have the opportunity to work with someone like Idris, who is just an incredible actor.
