'Benidorm' star Philip Olivier thinks the reason he lands acting work is because of his toned physique
Philip Olivier thinks his body lands him acting work.
The 33-year-old actor keeps in the best physical shape he can because he thinks his toned physique is one of his greatest professional assets.
He said: "I keep fit and trim, not only for my health but because it's a very lucrative business. There must be more than 10 jobs I've only got because of my body. Like I did the 'Never Forget' [stage] show and I'd never had any musical experience - I couldn't sing and I still can't - but I got cast as the stripper and that's down to the physique."
The 'Benidorm' star also ruled out posing nude for a photoshoot, but admits he would bare all if the right role came along.
He said: "Once it's out there, it's out there and I'm an actor not a model. I'd only do it for a play. I was asked to do that a couple of years ago and I said yes but it clashed with another job."
However, Philip is keen to strip more in public and may venture to a nudist beach close to the 'Benidorm' set.
He added to Attitude magazine: "You know what, I haven't been on a nudist beach. But there is one in Benidorm so I should check it out. I'd lie face up, of course, otherwise what's the point?"
