Roxanne Pallett wants to star in 'Mad Men' because she would "love" to appear in a show set in a past era

Roxanne Pallett wants to star in 'Mad Men'.

The 29-year-old actress - who recently starred as Shelby Dixon in BBC One drama 'Waterloo Road' - would "love" to appear in the US show, which is set in the 1960s, because she is particularly keen to take up a role in a programme set in a past era.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I really like the American dramas like 'Mad Men', I would love to be in 'Mad Men' because I think Americans are so forward thinking. I would love to be in a show that's set in a different era, it would be really exciting.

"It could be something in the 70s or the 80s, being in something around that time would be great.

"I think everybody I know would like to star in a show like that. It's so obvious the first time you watch it that it is going to be successful."

But the brunette beauty doesn't have any ambitions to star in any more reality TV shows because she believes they would be an "anti-climax" after appearing in 2009's 'Dancing On Ice', which really helped to "toughen" her up.

She added: "I don't think I'd like to do another reality show, I think I've done the best one already so anything else would be an anti-climax. 'Strictly' and 'Dancing On Ice' are the best two because you learn a talent, you're walking away with something.

"It really toughened me up doing that show. My stamina improved. I went away on tour shortly after and it really helped me, toughened me up and boosted my confidence."
