British actress Anna Friel is best known for her role on the much-acclaimed television series “Pushing Daisies.” That show effectively put her on the map, and immediately after its cancellation Friel was offered six pilots, all of which she turned down in favor of pursuing the big screen. Friel’s notable film roles to date have included parts in Land of the Lost, London Boulevard, and most recently Limitless, the film in which Bradley Cooper takes an amazing super drug and becomes Bradley Cooper.

A word from Anna: “The most important thing – apart from telling a good, believable story, and being a true character – is to be someone the audience will care about, even if you’re playing a murderer or rapist.”

Keira Knightley Bra

That’s right. Keira Knightley is cashing checks from the Syfy now. Though it won’t entail she roll around in cake with Deborah Gibson or go toe-to-toe with a Piranhceratops.

Knightley will loan her voice to Tinkerbell in the upcoming mini-series “Neverland.” Syfy’s live-action retelling of the classic story features other real non-Richard Grieco actors as well. Rhys Ifans, Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins, Charles Dance, Raoul Trujillo and Charlie Rowe have all signed on for roles.

The story follows Rowe’s Peter, and his group of pickpocket friends. Rhys Ifans plays their mentor Jimmy Hook, who has them snatch a magical orb that sends them to Neverland. There they encounter magical tree spirits and pirates who are on the hunt for the secret to eternal youth.

I’m surprised to hear that there are none of Syfy’s horrific, hybrid monsters appearing in the series. J.M. Barrie’s original featured an alligator. It must be killing the execs at Syfy not to splice it with a snapping turtle or wild boar. At the very least, they could make it humongous. (Deadline)
