British actress Jaime Winstone had a harrowing time researching her role as a murdered prostitute - she met with the woman's devastated family to perfect the character.
Winstone, daughter of The Departed star Ray Winstone, took on the part of Anneli Alderton in Five Daughters, a BBC drama telling the story of five sex workers murdered by serial killer Steve Wright in England in 2006.
And preparing for the role left the young actress distraught after she held talks with Alderton's relatives to get a greater understanding of the woman she was playing.
Winstone tells Britain's Sunday Express, "That was different because my character, Anneli Alderton, was a real person and suffered so much. The script was very well written but I wanted to know a bit more about her so I had some contact with the family.
"I was so concerned about getting it right for them. I think we all wanted to show that these girls weren't just prostitutes - they were people. I did feel quite upset then. I thought of my mum, her mum and what these girls went through."
Wright was jailed for life in 2008 after being found guilty of all five murders.
