Plays
Bethany Mortimer

TELL ME A BIT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER:
She's a 19 year old virgin and adopted daughter of Tim (and Sarah), a Christian cult leader, through who she meets Noah. She's sweet and endearing and has never had a boyfriend before - let alone a footballer!

WHAT DO YOU LEAST LIKE ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
There is nothing to dislike about playing Bethany. But she is a little naive - but I think that is because of her sheltered upbringing and good nature. I guess it would be fun if she was more scandalous!

WHAT DO YOU MOST LIKE ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
I love the fact that she's madly and passionately in love with Noah.

WHAT IS IN STORE FOR YOUR CHARACTER IN THIS SERIES?
My story lines revolve around my character's relationship with Noah.

THE SHOW IS FAMOUS FOR THE COSTUMES AND GLAMOUR - DO YOU HAVE SOME GOOD OUTFITS TO WEAR IN THIS SERIES?
Yes, I loved the pink tweed, vintage Prada number I got to wear to the shooting party at the Milligans - that was great and really glam.

IF YOU COULD INVENT A STORYLINE TO DO WITH YOUR CHARACTER WHAT SITUATION WOULD YOU WRITE?
I think it would be really interesting to delve into Bethany's unspoilt past - perhaps she was stolen by Tim and Sarah while they were in Africa working at a mission, and her real parents come to find her. I think there would be an African witch doctor involved - it could be funny and something different at least! Also I see Bethany getting jilted at the alter or finding out that Noah is gay on their wedding night/honeymoon...

HAVE YOU HAD A HOLIDAY THIS YEAR - IF SO WHERE DID YOU GO, WHAT WAS IT LIKE?
My boyfriend and I went to the States and Japan earlier this year signing artists to our music label. You could say it was more of a working holiday! We survived on fast food and 4 hours of sleep a night...

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EVER FOOTBALLERS' WIVES MOMENT?
I loved it last series when Shannon and Harley lost control of their wedding hot air balloon and ended up in a safari park - that was really funny and they are such a cute couple.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING TO DO AFTER FINISHING FILMING THE SERIES?
I want to do more TV, Film and theatre. I am releasing my single "Got what u need" in January so that is something to look forward to.

HAVE YOU ANY LONG TERM GOALS OR AMBITIONS FOR THE FUTURE?
My boyfriend and I have just started running our own record label together - "Ballerville Records". In the long term I want to be able to release more music all over the world, sign more artists, work with more people and create opportunities for talented kids who would never be able to get a look in, in the music industry.

YOUR CHARACTER IS THE LOVE INTEREST FOR THE CHARACTER NOAH - DO YOU THINK SHE IS IN DENIAL OR TRULY BELIEVES HE CAN BECOME STRAIGHT?
She definitely believes he can become straight. She believes he has been converted through her church - "The Church of the Found". Her father himself is a "converted homosexual" and she has been conditioned into that way of thinking. Although the more she becomes exposed to the real world, the more suspicious of Noah she gets, but she just doesn't want to believe the truth.

BETHANY IS RELIGIOUS AND HAS BEEN BROUGHT UP IN A VERY RELIGIOUS ENVIRONMENT - HOW DOES THIS COMPARE WITH YOU?
My family isn't religious but as a kid I went to a church school and our school had very close links to the local church. I always loved it in December as we would have a huge Christmas Concert. It would take months to prepare and I would get to miss class to rehearse my solo songs. It was a beautiful time of year and loads of fun - we had an excellent music department.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST ACTING JOB?
I jumped right in the deep end! My first job was playing Maria in West Side Story at the Leicester Haymarket Theatre in February 2003. It was challenging but one of the most amazing times of my life - I liked it because it combined my two loves, singing and acting, and the whole team, just like Footballers' Wives became like a family to me.

WHAT ROLE ARE YOU MOST WELL KNOWN FOR?
I'm still new to this game and Footballers' Wives is my first TV role - how lucky can you get?! But playing Maria in West Side Story, I'm probably best known for. I did spend a short time on the reality program Fame Academy. I was in it for four weeks and was tactically voted out by the fellow students - I must have been just too darn good!

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THE MONEY IF YOU SUDDENLY RECEIVED A PREMIER FOOTBALLER'S SALARY?
After a massive shopping spree, new wardrobe, a pampering holiday in Hawaii and gifts for my family, I would invest it into my business and release more music.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE WAY OF PAMPERING YOURSELF?
A steaming hot bubble bath full of "Lush" - I love Lush - surrounded by aromatherapy candles and scented candles. Then going to bed. Mmmmm.

HOW DO YOU WIND DOWN AFTER A BUSY DAY?
Same as the above as well as watching one of my fave DVDs like Breakfast at Tiffany's or The Wedding Singer - that's so funny!

WHAT WAS YOUR FUNNIEST SCENE TO RECORD?
I haven't had any funny scenes yet - but the snogging scenes where a laugh because my lip gloss kept going everywhere making Marcel, who plays Noah, look really funny!

YOU HAD SOME BED SCENES - HOW WERE THEY?
I was a little nervous because I had never done anything like that before. But Marcel and the director (Rob Bangura) made it very comfortable. Playing a virgin, it was like reliving my first sexual experience - fumbling awkward and a bit comical.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
Hertfordshire.

WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND BROUGHT UP?
I was born and bred in London. Born in Westminster, I grew up in the multi-cultured borough of Brent. I had friends from all over the world.

WHAT STAR SIGN ARE YOU?
Appropriately - a Virgo.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN THEM?
Yes, but only when it is positive! Although I do have many of the characteristics of a Virgo, I also like the fact that so is Beyonce.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BEAUTY PRODUCT?
I love anything from Clarins - it is great for my sensitive skin. But I recently discovered "Bikini" by Christian Dior - a fabulous oily, citrussy, body scrub - it leaves me glistening all over. I also love Alveda products - my hair drinks the stuff!

WHAT BEAUTY REGIME DO YOU SWEAR BY?
Cleans, tone and moisturise. I also exfoliate all over once a week and use Lush face masks whenever I need a boost. I also think a bit of sun always makes me glow and feel better.

HOW DO YOU KEEP SO SLIM?
My hectic lifestyle - running a record label and filming Footballers' Wives means I eat little and often and I'm always on the go - therefore I'm burning calories all day long.
