London (ANI): Former X Files star Gillian Anderson is set to appear
in a racy BBC2 drama about Victorian prostitutes. The actress will
join Atonement's Romola Garai, Richard E Grant, the IT Crowd's
Chris O'Dowd and Mark Gatiss in the four-parter, 'The Crimson Petal
and the White".
Romola plays Sugar, a hooker plucked from the brothel by a
wealthy man. "It's a really fresh and surprising cast that will
bring this provocative tale to life," the Mirror quoted a BBC
spokesman as saying.
