London (ANI): Television actor Christopher Eccleston will soon be seen playing John Lennon in new BBC drama 'John Lennon – Naked". In fact, the first day of the shoot saw the filming of the event back in October 18, 1968, when the Beatles member and his girlfriend Yoko Ono were arrested following a drugs raid at a flat in London.
During the incident, cops had found 200 grams of marijuana and half a gram of morphine inside the basement apartment in London"s Montagu Square that belonged to Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
Yoko, who was pregnant, had a miscarriage after the arrest, and the 'Imagine" hitmaker pleaded guilty and paid 150 pounds over fears that she would be deported. The Daily Star reported, Dr Who actor was not recognizable in Lennon"s trademark long straggly hair. The 90-minute drama will be aired on BBC4 next year.
