Former Bond girl Carey Lowell is giving up life as Richard Gere's wife to return to acting - as a blind teacher.

The actress was determined to be a stay-at-home mum until one TV movie role made her reconsider.

In true story adaptation MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE, she'll play a teacher for the blind who loses her own sight.

She says, "It really wasn't until this script came along that I was compelled to say yes."

Lowell researched the role by doing the dishes blindfolded at home.
