Actress Greta Scacchi relished the chance to play Bette Davis on the London stage last year (11), hailing it as "the best role" she has ever had.
The Heat and Dust star appeared alongside Anita Dobson in the play Bette and Joan, about the personal and professional relationship between Davis and Joan Crawford - and she was only too happy to accept a role so different to her usual performances.
Speaking on U.K. chat show Loose Women, she says, "It's the best role I've ever had - the range... Actors always want to play different types, we don't want to be typecast, but typecasting is the nature of success so for years I had to look pretty and elegant and very often be well-behaved or cold-hearted and mean but actually in life I'm half Italian and I'm quite hot-blooded and expressive.
"And I felt very often my acting had to be more restricted, more restricted in my behaviour than I am in life and Bette gives me a chance to let it all out."
