Stars including Billie Piper, Samantha Bond and Robert Lindsay have dared to bare for a very theatrical naked calendar.
The casts of Great Britain, the phone-hacking comedy in which Piper starred at the National Theatre, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, originally featuring Bond and Lindsay, posed with props and costumes for the Make A Difference Trust’s £10 calendar.
They were joined by the stars of Mamma Mia!, Once, The Commitments, Wicked, Les Misérables, Stomp, The Mousetrap, Miss Saigon, Jersey Boys and Urinetown.
All proceeds go towards the charity, which supports people living with HIV and Aids in Britain and Africa.
The Penny Dreadful shooting schedule requires Billie to be back in the U.K. sooner than we had all planned– thus her appearance days have been changed to Friday and Saturday from the original Saturday/Sunday. We’re relieved she’s still able to join us!
If you attended Belfast Film & Comic Con, you can purchase your photos on the site (if you wanted another), if not, check them out, there’s some gorgeous photos of Billie HERE!
HQ candids from 14th & 15th Nov have been added, including Billie leaving a meeting in London & bike riding with Eugene and Winston!
