I have a piece up for the BBC and, interestingly also stumbled across this story about a group of British daytime TV stars who are considered to be “too old.”
A group of British soap opera actresses appear naked this month in a magazine to raise awareness of age discrimination on television.
According to Jessica Laurence of AOL News, “The stars of Loose Women, Eastenders and Coronation Street have stripped bare for a photo shoot in Best magazine as part of a campaign to fight ageism in TV. Posing completely nude for the magazine’s Body Image issue, Gillian Taylforth (EastEnders), Beverley Callard (Coronation Street), Sherrie Hewson and Andrea McLean (Loose Women) protested against the scarcity of roles for older women on television.”
