The ”Absolutely Fabulous” actress shares her choice picks on video

Posted on

She plays Jennifer Saunders’ wallflower daughter Saffron on the Britcom Absolutely Fabulous (just out on BBC Video). So, what movies does she consider ab fab?

ALL ABOUT EVE (1950, Fox Video) ”The character Bette Davis plays is my idea of a glamorous theatrical actress. It’s what I imagine Hollywood and Broadway used to be like.”

WITHNAIL AND I (1987, Media) ”It’s about two actors, ‘suffering artists.’ Basically they’re two people in the same position; one person gets himself out of it, and the other is left wallowing in his self-pity. I’ve been there. I identify.”

THE WRONG TROUSERS (1993, BBC) ”The animation is brilliant. And you’d never think a penguin made out of Plasticine could be so frightening.”
