NAOMI BENTLEY......FILM AND TELEVISION ACTRESS

Post  SaintMike on Tue 20 Sep 2011, 3:18 pm

I am pleased to say Naomi Bentley is to come onto the Star Bar!!



From buddytv.com:

Naomi Bentley is a British actress best known for her roles in television series such as Grownups, Primeval and Dalziel and Pascoe. After graduating from a three-year acting course at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London in 2004, she made her television debut through a guest appearance in the medical drama Holby City. She then played a receptionist in the crime drama Blue Murder, and Leonilda in the 2005 serial Casanova. She also played the lead in the London stage production of Burn.


AS LEONILDA IN CASANOVA


WITH ANDREW GARFIELD IN BURN

In 2005, Bentley appeared in two series of the crime series Dalziel and Pascoe, and made her film debut in Can You Take It? that same year. In 2006, she appeared on the miniseries Goldplated, and on the film January 2nd. She also made a guest appearance on the Ricky Gervais-fronted sitcom Extras. In 2007, she starred in the film The Mark of Cain, a drama about three men experiencing the brutality of war for the first time.


IN GROWNUPS

In 2007, she appeared in the sketch show Rush Hour, playing a production assistant; and in the sitcom Grownups, as Rachel, the very rich girl who’s suggested to be a transsexual. She also played the role of Caroline Steel in the second series of the science fiction drama Primeval. Her character is the assistant of Oliver Leek (Karl Theobald), but she is oblivious to his plans. Her character also has ambitions to appear in television, but has not made it in either The X Factor or Big Brother. She is also afraid of lizards, although she loves cats and dogs.


CAST OF GROWNUPS


PRIMEVAL

The second series of Primeval, in which Bentley played a leading role, was shown on ITV in March and April 2008.

She starred in new BBC One comedy drama Mutual Friends alongside Marc Warren, Keeley Hawes, Sarah Alexander and Alexander Armstrong. She also played medical student Holly Farr in Silent Witness in 2008.


SILENT WITNESS

She appeared as Mina in the Jonathan Creek 2009 Christmas Special. Her most recent role was in 2011 BBC 3 series White Van Man.

Hi, I love the White Van Man. Is there to be another series? Will Mellor is such a funny guy and a good actor as he proved in Sorted. You are my favourite character in White Van Man, was it fun to make?

Hi and thanks for doing this for us, I hope I am not going to annoy you with this one.

You have one of those lovely faces that is simply impossible to forget and I recognised your photo instantly..........but it took a while to register with me what programmes I had seen you in. Do you ever find members of the public recognise you....and then struggle to remember what they have seen you in?

You have played loads of roles brilliantly but you still seem to mostly get supporting character or maybe co-star parts. You deserve to have a series built around you and to be the central character, have you never been offered something on those lines?
Have you got a fan club? If not, I'm thinking we should be starting one for you!

As a child did you always want to be an actress? Did you get leading parts in plays at school? Which actresses did you admire? Who did you want to be like?

You're so beautiful and sexy, I envy you your looks. Do you have to work hard to keep your figure or does it come naturally? Is there a part of your appearance that you're specially proud of? Anything you'd change?

To be honest I just really enjoy my job and welcome a challenge! I like the idea of being able to play lots of different characters and different genres, that way I'm resisting the industry's urge to put me in a box so to speak. I still don't quite understand why people think I'm good at comedy, maybe that's the secret, I don't know...

Silent witness is a brilliant show! I was so excited to be part of it! working with the main cast was a little intimidating at first to be honest as they are great at what they do. However they treated me with so much kindness, I was really made to feel welcome.
