London: ‘Gavin and Stacey’s’ Mat Horne has roped in old pal Kylie Minogue to play a saucy actress in his latest TV project.
An actress pulled out of the short film ‘Hey Diddly Dee’, written and directed by Mad Dogs’ Marc Warren.
So Horne rang the popstar, with whom he starred in ‘The Kylie Show’ and co-presented 2009’s Brit awards, the Sun reported.
He was stunned when she agreed to do the Sky Arts Playhouse Presents play, which is about rivalry backstage in a theatre.
“The production company were saying, ‘Don’t be ridiculous, she’ll never do it.’ But I rang her. I thought maybe she would like to play a sort of sexually voracious man-eater, which she quite truly isn’t,” he said.
Eventually he got a call from Warren saying, Kylie’s doing it.
