Álainn or Appallin’: Anna Skellern
This season of Lip Service has already given me one of the greatest shocks I have ever had whilst watching TV. Season 2 episode 2 was the biggest surprise I have had since Rita was found in the bath on Dexter. However it is not all doom and gloom, where one door closes another opens and in this case, in walks sexy Lexy herself Anna Skellern.
Born in Sydney in 1985, Anna is best known as a member of satirical comedian group The Chaser, on which she was the first female cast member, you may also recognise her from The Descent Part 2. Personally I am to scared to watch films like that so when I saw her walk into Lip Service I knew her from the wonderful Outnumbered. So it’s no surprise that her character on Lip Service is funny as Anna has shown time and again her talent when it comes to comedy so will hopefully be some light relief in the face of all the current melancholy.
What every TV show needs is a lesbian doctor, it’s just the ticket. You need look no further than Grey’s Anatomy, there is no doubt that Arizona Robbins has added more than just her good looks to the shows already great line up of characters. Women in scrubs are just sexy, it’s the law.
When talking to AfterEllen Skellern recently said of her part
When you work in A&E and you see people die every week, the last thing you want in your personal life is anything too dramatic. I think Tess and Sadie add a lot of the humour in the second series. There is a really well written scene with Tess and Lexy in episode 3 that I find hilarious.
I like the sound of that. If there is one thing Lip Service needs right now it’s a laugh.
So many questions to ask already. Who will Lexy end up with Tess or Sam? Will she be shown in her scubs more often, lets hope so. Most importantly of all, what do you think of Anna, Álainn or Appallin’?
