Claire Skinner is one of the few hot-blooded British actresses ever to make a splash Stateside, but her name isn't as recognizable as, say, Catherine Zeta-Jones. Maybe Claire should find herself an aging Hollywood playboy like Michael Douglas to ball. Even without that advantage Claire has led a wonderful career, appearing in just over twenty productions (mostly on the BBC) in just over a decade. Oddly enough, her penchant for onscreen nudity didn't really materialize (or dematerialize) until later, with her big nudie debut in A Dance to the Music of Time (1997), in which she went balls-out full frontal with a couple of nice ass shots thrown in for good measure. Her biggest hits on this side of the pond were as the decapitated midwife in Sleepy Hollow (1999) and as Magda in Bridget Jones's Diary (2001). But for a bigger thrill, check out Claire's little scones in Second Sight (1999), Mauvaise passe (1999), and Perfect Strangers (1999). Let's hope this English lady doesn't remain a stranger long.
