THE girl star of ITV’s costume drama Nicholas Nickleby has revealed her most nerve-racking part – filming a love scene with heart-throb Johnny Depp.
Sophia Myles – heroine Kate in the Dickens adaptation concluding today – had to get into bed with Depp in the film From Hell about Jack the Ripper.
And the 19-year-old blonde says stripping naked with Depp in front of the cameras was terrifying.
But she says she soon warmed to the task of filming the raunchy love scene.
She says: “I’d be lying if I said: `Oh, it’s just work’. It was fantastic. And Johnny was charming.
“There were three or four scenes and one of them was this love scene.
“When we shot it, he was totally normal and very kind to me.
“Of course when I told my friends I went to bed with Johnny Depp they said, `You Bitch’!”
Sophia, who still lives with her parents in Isleworth, Middx, was always destined for stardom.
She was first spotted by the BBC while she was still doing her GCSEs at the age of 16 – and later starred in the drama The Prince and the Pauper.
