Plays
Anika Beevor

TELL ME A BIT ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
She's very determined and manipulative; she desperately wants what Tanya's got.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT PLAYING YOUR CHARACTER?
Being a bitch!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE AND DISLIKE ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER IF YOU WERE INTRODUCED IN REAL LIFE?
I don't think that there's anything I'd like about her.

WHAT ARE THE SIMILARITIES/DIFFERENCES BETWEEN YOU AND THE CHARACTER YOU ARE PLAYING?
Thankfully the only similarity is that we're both blondes!

WERE YOU A FAN OF FOOTBALLERS' WIVES BEFORE GETTING INVOLVED WITH EXTRA TIME?
Yes, I was an avid watcher of the first series. I think its great fun.

WHAT DO YOU THINK VIEWERS WILL THINK OF THIS EXTENSION TO FOOTBALLERS' WIVES?
I think they'll love it.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST PROFESSIONAL ACTING ROLE?
It was a commercial for chewy sweets. I was a puppets head... nice job!

WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND BROUGHT UP?
In a village near Crewe in Cheshire.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
Manchester

DO YOU SUPPORT A FOOTBALL TEAM?
Not really, Manchester United if I had to say one.

WHAT IS YOUR STAR SIGN AND DO YOU BELIEVE IN THEM?
Taurus. I read them but take them with a pinch of salt.

WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING INVOLVED WITH EXTRA TIME?
Playing a great role that's so far removed from me!

HAVE YOU FILMED A MEMORABLE SCENE YET?
It has to be the hoover scene... hilarious (Anika pleasures her boyfriend with the nozzle of a Dyson). It was the first time I'd done an underwear scene so I was obviously nervous. But the scene is so funny that I soon relaxed.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME? ANY HOBBIES OR SPORTS YOU ENJOY?
I do like going to the gym, but I love to watch movies with my boyfriend.
