[an error occurred while processing this directive]London (ANI): Audience members attending Breakfast at Tiffany"s at the West End theatre have been banned from taking pictures of British actress Anna Friel as she performs in the nude. Friel, 33, has to strip off for her role as Holly Golightly in the production, which is based on the 1958 novella by Truman Capote.
And theatre staff have been ordered to confiscate mobile phones of anyone attempting to take covert pictures of her, after photographs of her in the nude during a preview performance found their way onto the Internet.
“Front of house staff have been put on alert to spot mobile phones because of Anna"s nudity. This is a serious production and they don"t want the naked scenes to be the only talking point," the Telegraph quoted a source as saying.
The show, which opened on September 30 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, started with a stern warning to audience members not to whip out a phone to take pictures or record video.
