British actress Sienna Miller cancelled an appearance at the trial of Bryan Ferry's son OTIS by text message. The Factory Girl star was due to appear as a witness at West London Magistrates court on Tuesday (27Nov07) where Otis Ferry is being tried for criminal damage. Ferry denies causing $1400 (GBP680) of damage to the cars of two photographers who were taking pictures of Miller leaving London nightclub Boujis in February (07) with his brother Isaac - who she was rumoured to be dating at the time. The 25-year-old is alleged to have reached through the windows of both cars, removed the keys from the ignition and thrown them away. But Miller sent a text message to inform the court that she would not be attending due to filming commitments in Mexico. Ferry's lawyer Philip Lucas told the court, "I have a witness difficulty in that she is not here. She has indicated she can't make it in a text." The judge indicated that Miller will be forced to testify at a later date. The hearing continues.
