Today on This Morning two actresses appeared on the shot to talk about how Michael Winner lured them into his ‘sex trap’ after he invited them for a acting interview when they were aspiring young actresses.
“I was so excited he wanted to meet me.
“I couldn’t wait to see him, I spent hours tarting myself up and it was such a shock to be spoken to in that way.
“I went to his home, which was not unusual, as I’d done a film with Ken Russell where I met him in his house.
She then continued:
“But he then told me to, ‘Go over there by the window, I’d like to see you in the light.’ Again, I didn’t think it was unusual.
“He then said, ‘Now I’d like you to take off your top and your bra off and massage your breasts’.
“I was like, ‘Sorry?’ I thought it was joke, but he asked me again three times.
“I was in my early 20s and I knew what to expect, but I didn’t expect this. I went over to his desk and very rudely told him where to put it.
“He said, ‘I’m going to report you to your agent and equity’, so I then ran to a phone box, phoned my mum who was my agent and he’d already rang her.
it must have been so awful for the to go through something like this.
