I've got quite a big gay following. I played a lesbian prostitute in the TV series 'Band Of Gold' but I think my following really grew when I played one in the film 'Imagine Me & You,' with Piper Perabo.

Getting the role in '300' saved me. I'd been out of work for 11 months after 'The Brothers Grimm.'

It was pretty appalling, and I had started to wonder if I'd ever get another job again when I was asked to audition for '300.'
