Lara Pulver `offered swinger films` after nude scenes in Sherlock

London: Lara Pulver has revealed that she has received a flood of offers of parts in swinger flicks since stripping off in an episode of BBC1’s ‘Sherlock’.

The 31-year-old actress stripped off completely, apart from diamond earrings and a pair of high-heeled shoes, to play the whip-wielding dominatrix Irene Adler in the popular revival of the classic detective tales.

The episode became the most-watched show so far this year on the BBC’s iPlayer online catch-up service, and has led to some rather unsavoury offers of work for Pulver.

“I take my clothes off for a minute and a half and everyone suddenly goes, ‘Oh great, she’s an actress who will take her clothes off. We can’t get Kate Winslet. Let’s see if Lara Pulver will do a swinger movie’,” the Telegraph quoted her as telling the Radio Times.

Pulver’s episode of Sherlock, called ‘A Scandal In Belgravia,’ which was broadcast on New Year’s Day before the 9pm watershed, drew around 100 complaints from viewers who were offended by the nudity.

The actress has previously revealed that she chose to get completely naked to film the 90-second scene, dispensing with the stick-on bra she was offered.

“It didn’t bother me in the slightest and I’m someone who’s never done that sort of thing before on stage or screen,” she said.

Pulver stressed that she only agreed to take her clothes off in ‘Sherlock’ because it was a character device and not “nudity for nudity’s sake.”

However, she refused to lower her shoulder strap when appearing in the American vampire drama ‘True Blood’ because it did not feel “appropriate”.

Having turned down the offered swinger films, the actress is now appearing in a one-off Channel 4 drama called ‘Camouflage’ as a make-up artist who falls in love with a refugee.

She also hopes to do some comedy, and does not rule out playing Irene Adler again in a future episode of ‘Sherlock’.
