Jaime Winstone will play a stripper in new Channel 4 drama 'Run'
Jaime Winstone will play a stripper in new TV drama 'Run'.
The actress will star in the four-part Channel 4 series which is currently being filmed in London and tells the stories of four characters who appear unconnected.
Jaime's character finds her life turned upside down when her boyfriend is murdered and she discovers his death from a partner she never knew existed.
The gritty series will also star Lennie James as a former heroin addict and Olivia Colman as a single mother, struggling to keep her teenage son in line.
Jaime recently appeared on screen with her father Ray in the horror movie 'Elfie Hopkins' but has previously admitted she rebelled against acting because she didn't want to follow in the footsteps of Ray and her older sister Lois and was shocked when she got offered her first role.
She said: "My dad did it, my sister did it so I guess I was rebelling about that.
"The director said I'd got the role in 'Kidulthood' and I was like 'but how?'I couldn't get my head around how I got it or what I was doing. But the process of making the film convinced me that I can do this, I can connect to someone other than me at this age."
