Anna Friel eyeing stage career

LONDON: Actress Anna Friel is considering turning her back on TV and film work in favour of stage roles after falling in love with theatre work during her acclaimed West End run in Breakfast At Tiffany's.

The ex Pushing Daisies star has received rave reviews for her role as Holly Golightly in the London stage version of the classic 1961 movie.

And Friel is now eyeing stage career because she was shocked by her own reaction to the role.

"When my agent asked me what I wanted to do next, I said, 'I want to keep doing plays.' I never thought I'd say that in the middle of a very hard run, but I absolutely love it," the Daily Express quoted Friel as telling London's Evening Standard.

"It's almost shocking to me that there are so many different facets to Holly. Every night can be a completely different performance... That's the excitement of theatre," she added.
