'Sherlock' star Lara Pulver has been inundated with sexy roles after appearing as a naked dominatrix in an episode of the BBC One drama
Lara Pulver has been inundated with offers of sexy roles since she stripped off naked for 'Sherlock'.
The 31-year-old actress caused a stir when she appeared on screen completely nude apart from a pair of high heels and diamond earrings opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC One series and ever since her job offers have gotten far more racy.
Lara told Radio Times magazine: "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.'"
Despite only being naked on screen for 90 seconds, the episode in question called 'A Scandal in Belgravia' is still at the top of the iPlayer chart.
Lara - who has also starred in 'True Blood' and 'Spooks' - described her experience as "empowering" after discovering she could still act well while exposed.
She confessed: "I was in my rawest, most vulnerable physical form and to be standing there like that and still doing my job and doing it well.
"That's what was empowering, realising, 'I'm not crumbling; I'm not freaking out; I'm not shaking; I'm still able to say my lines.' "
Lara will next appear in Channel 4 drama 'Camouflage', which chronicles the unlikely love story between a make-up artist and a refugee.
