BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM star Parminder Nagra worries her success will turn her into a spokesperson for the Indian culture.

The British-born actress, 27, has landed a role in hit medical drama ER off the back of the soccer-based flick - which made waves around the world.

And while she enjoys the recognition her talents have awarded her, Nagra doesn't want to be pressured into representing her culture of origin.

She says, "I don't want to end up a cultural spokesperson. That's a big responsibility, and I'm not a politician. I am an actress trying to do my work."
