James gets no Peace from fans

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE star of saucy tele­vi­sion drama War and Peace told of his “creepy” fan mail hell.

James Nor­ton, 30, has shot to fame in the hit BBC One se­ries along­side babe Lily James.

But the ac­tor said it’s not his role as Rus­sian Prince An­drei Bolkon­sky that saw him bom­barded with saucy fan mail, it was his part as a SE­RIAL KILLER.

Nor­ton ( above) be­gan his ca­reer by play­ing dis­turbed Tommy in dark thriller Happy Val­ley.

He said: “Girls, of­ten quite young girls, would write me notes telling me they wanted me to take them down to a cel­lar. It was creepy.”

War and Peace, dubbed ‘Ph­woar and Peace’ by fans be­cause of its sexy plot lines, is based on the clas­sic novel by Leo Tol­stoy.

The book fol­lows the aris­to­cratic fam­i­lies of Rus­sia as the coun­try is in­vaded by the French army.

As part of the plot a brother and sis­ter start shag­ging and a prince falls in the love with his cousin.

GO­RIL­LAS and pota­toes have two more chro­mo­somes

than peo­ple.
