Some viewers may have problems with the amount of nudity in Game Of Thrones but not former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan. The 27-year-old actress revealed she would be happy to go nude for Game of Thrones, if they ever offered her a role that is!
Michelle Keegan is a fan of Game of Thrones.
Keegan is best known for playing Tina McIntyre on the British soap from 2008 until this year. Her character's untimely end caused a stir in the soap opera world as Tina McIntyre was clubbed to death by Rob Donovan (played by Marc Baylis) at the beginning of June. Keegan, who is dating The Only Way Is Essex's Mark Wright, spoke to the Daily Star about her future career.
Keegan stated she was in process of auditioning for various roles after being in Coronation Street for more than six years. She said, "I'm auditioning again now. It's nerve-racking but I'm getting more excited than anything. I'm getting a buzz from being out there again. It's exciting times for me at the minute." Keegan is currently honing her craft and is attempting to improve her acting skills, she added "I'm currently busy having elocution lessons and acting lessons and want to be taken seriously as an actress."
Roxanne Mckee starred in Hollyoaks before joining the GoT cast.
When asked by the tabloid what her dream role would be, Keegan said she would love a part in the hit HBO drama Game of Thrones and would consider going to some extreme lengths for a role. She said "I'm a huge Game Of Thrones fan. I'd obviously love a role in that," adding "I would consider getting naked and having sex scenes if the role was right."
If Keegan did gain a role of Game of Thrones, she would be joining other soap actresses who have appeared on the series. These include Roxanne McKee who played Doreah, a traitorous maid servant of Daenerys Targaryen. McKee starred in Hollyoaks as Louise Summers between 2005 and 2008. Interestingly, another former Hollyoaks actress currently stars as another of Daenerys' handmaidens. Nathalie Emmanuel stars as Missandei, she played the role of Sasha Valentine on the soap between 2006 and 2010. Both actresses, Keegan will be pleased to hear, have had nude and sex scenes on Game of Thrones.
Keegan is set to appear in Peter Pan as Tinkerbell which will tour Europe this year and next. To date she has not been offered a role on HBO's Game of Thrones.
Nathalie Emmanuel stars on GoT, she starred in Hollyoaks between 2006 and 2010.
