In an article on TV Scoop listing five British actors bound for glory in the States, a certain Pushing Daisies star topped the rankings.
Here's what it said:
1. Anna Friel
Still best known for smooching with a lady as Beth Jordache on British soap Brookside, Anna Friel is set to bid for US stardom in Pushing Daisies. This new offering from Bryan Fuller has been described by Friel's co-star Kristen Chenoweth as "phantasmagorical" and she could be onto something.
Following in the footsteps of other big concept shows such as 24, Lost and Heroes, Pushing Daisies centers on pie maker Ned who discovers he can bring the dead back to life with one touch. This somewhat unorthodox party trick proves useful when the love of his life Chuck (Friel) dies.
The only problem is that once revived, Ned cannot touch the person again otherwise they will die for good.
