Downton star’s agony at TV rape storyline
DOWNTON Abbey star Joanne Froggatt is no stranger to harrowing story lines. But even she had reservations about playing an alleged date rape victim in new ITV drama, Liar.
The 37-year-old, who played Anna Bates in a Downton rape scene in 2013, said: ‘I did read it and go, “Oh, if only it was a different subject matter.”’
But she added that it was ‘great’ to be a part of a show that sparked conversation about such a sensitive issue.
