Helen Mccrory - Damian Lewis Urged Wife To Go Naked On Screen
Harry Potter star Helen Mccrory has credited her husband Damian Lewis with convincing her to strip off for the camera.
The actress, who played Narcissa Malfoy in the Potter film franchise, refused to sign up for the leading role in new U.K. TV drama Leaving as it required her to bare all - but Homeland star Lewis urged her go for it.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "He said to me, 'I think you're mad to always say no, no, no. It's bonkers.' So I listened to him and I took the role. And I'm really happy that I did. It was totally freeing. In fact, I doubt I shall ever be clothed on screen again!"
MCCrory, who married Lewis in 2007, is adamant she would not have revealed all as a younger woman, adding, "At 21, I thought that kind of thing was exploitation. But now I'm in my forties, I think it's art."
