Emilia Fox has revealed her four-year-old daughter Rose has a playroom on the set of her long-running hit series 'Silent Witness'
Emilia Fox's daughter has a playroom on the 'Silent Witness' set.
The 40-year-old actress - who has played Dr. Nikki Alexander on the show for 10 years - loves taking four-year-old Rose, who she has with former partner Jeremy Gilley, to work with her because she is made so welcome.
She said: "Rose is very much part of the show - as soon as she was born she had a room which the props guys kitted out with toys. She still comes on set which works very well with the juggle - and it is a juggle for any parent. You need to be able to work well as a parent."
Though Emilia has to work long hours on the show, she cherishes her time off between jobs as she can be with her daughter.
She said: "I work long hours but I might also have a few days off and that means I can be Mum from dawn to dusk.
"Before you're a parent, when you're unemployed, you're like, 'What am I going to work on?' But now in those moments I think, ah Rose and I get to be together, which is lovely."
And Emilia - who split from filmmaker Jeremy in 2011 - says the little girl is already showing signs of following in her footsteps.
She told OK! magazine: "She's such an entertainer. She's watching 'Calamity Jane' at the moment and knows all the songs and dance moves. But she might want to do what her dad does or something completely different and I'd support that."
