Tough at the top

TV Times - - Your Tv Times -

Play­ing a ruth­less busi­ness­woman in ITV drama al­lowed Stephanie Beacham to glam up af­ter two years in Tenko. In­deed, the ac­tress had to put on the 20lbs she had lost for the Ja­panese POW se­ries to fill out Con­nie’s 1980s power suits.

‘Con­nie is quite fright­ful, but I adore her,’ Stephanie told TV Times. ‘She is am­bi­tious, vin­dic­tive and vi­cious.’ Con­nie only lasted for 13 episodes and Stephanie went on to play the equally stylish but venge­ful Sable Colby in glossy Amer­i­can soap The Col­bys.
