Sarah-Jane stars alongside fellow Brit David Tennant in the remake of the hit UK series Broadchurch which is due to hit US TV screens next month. While David reprises his role as lead investigator in a shocking murder case, Sarah-Jane, sporting a dramatic blonde hairstyle, takes on the role of Gemma, the English owner of the town's only hotel.

"She's a little bit of a cheerful misfit," says Sarah-Jane of Gemma, whose business is struggling but who is determined to make a success of it. " She's the trouble maker, she doesn't mean to be...I feel like she has a really good heart."
