An­gela: I thought I was goner

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

WOR­RIED telly babe An­gela Grif­fin feared that she’d been chucked on the ca­reer SCRAPHEAP.

The ac­tress strug­gled to gain roles after leav­ing BBC One soap Water­loo Road in 2010.

And Leeds-born thesp An­gela ( above), 38, says she’s eter­nally grate­ful to ITV bosses for cast­ing her as DS Lizzie Mad­dox in popular crime drama Lewis.

She said: “I’m so ap­pre­cia­tive of this job, and not just be­cause of the lovely lo­ca­tions.

“I spent a year out of work dur­ing 2012 and 2013, which knocked my con­fi­dence, even though my agent told me it hap­pens to ev­ery­one.

“But I’m de­fined by my work and it was hard – also scary when you’ve got a mort­gage and you’re the main bread­win­ner.

“Then I got the show One Man, Two Gu­vnors in the West End and now Lewis. I’m so grate­ful.”

Lewis con­tin­ues Fri­days, ITV, 9pm.
