Moody Monday : BBC3 welcomes the Lip Servants
Yes I am aware, it is a bit late to be writing about this show since it’s actually completed its first season and awaiting a season two renewal (fingers and toes crossed) but that is the exact reason to resurrect the subject. In fact surprisingly I was one of the people to say that I wasn’t very impressed after watching the first episode. But I slowly but surely fell in love with the quirky characters (aka : Tess and Ed), the love Triangle (Frankie, Cat and Sam) and the friendships. A beautifully shot show which brought Glasgow to the forefront and revealed a different side to the Gay lifestyle in the UK.
So there you have it. I hope you enjoy some of these rare photos that I was able to get my hands on and feast you eyes while we wait till next year for season two.
THE CAST OF LIP SERVICE

Heather literally has acquired quite a lot of experience in different performance sectors (Television, Music and Theatre). If you’re a HP fan you should check out her website for upcoming gig info HeatherPeace.com as she’s quite a talented gal both vocally and instrumentally.
Ruta actually came to my attention on “The Tudors” and was quite well cast in LS for her physique but also for her acting ability. She was characterised by the LS casting director as “someone who has depth but also restraint of emotion”. Catch Ruta in the upcoming Showtime TV series “The Borgias”
Laura is basically Glasgow’s golden girl. She’s been acting in Film and Television for years since late teens and continues to work on local as well as various UK and international projects. I loved her work in Lip Service and I was surprised to find a vast list of projects she’s been in on IMDB. Look for her in the new series to come out next year from the creators of US series 24.

Fiona is the theatre mogul of the group recently appearing onstage in the London production of An Ideal Husband to raging reviews. I believe you can still catch her in it!

For the UK public she will always be known for her role of Louise Summers in Hollyoaks. In Lip Service she’s always be known for the woman who broke Tess’s heart.
Natasha, (aka Sadie if you can’t recognise her in this photo) is a relatively new face on Television so look out for her in future series. It’s always nice to see new faces on TV and it seems to me that the creator of Lip Service had a big soft spot for the character of Sadie (as quoted on the DVD special features interview). Check it out on the newly released DVD.
