Emilia's Run Of Bad Luck Continues

EMILIA FOX is experiencing a bad start to the year (04) - her scenes in forthcoming movie THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS have ended up on the cutting room floor.

The 29-year-old blonde, daughter of thespians EDWARD FOX and JOANNA DAVID, plays the legendary comedian's fourth wife LYNNE FREDERICK in the biopic - but her scenes have been axed.

It marks the second career set-back for Emilia this year - the PRIDE AND PREJUDICE star's brief run in the London theatre production of LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES came to an end after critics panned it.

A studio insider says, "She was actually very good. The problem was there were three other wives to fit in before her and whole thing about his relationship with women was starting to get repetitive.

"They simply had to cut the length of the film down, as it was running to around four hours, and Emilia was the one who had to go."
