Jane Horrocks has accused television producers of ‘churning out’ the same actors for leading roles. 

The British actress, renowned for her role in BBC sitcom Absolutely Fabulous, claimed that TV bosses are ‘so short-sighted’ during an intimate event, The Space, in Brighton. 

The 58-year-old believes that a wider range of actors should be considered for such roles, as they could bring something new.

Quizzed on how she felt about Olivia Colman, Keeley Hawes and Lily James being handed all the coveted telly gigs, she responded: ‘And Sarah Lancashire.’ 

She continued: ‘I think it’s a bit limiting for the audience to see the same crowd always coming on.

‘I just feel sorry for the audience really that the commissioners and the producers are so short-sighted that they have to keep churning out the same people.

‘They do an amazing job and if they’re being offered the roles then, of course, you take them,’ she said, before adding that she deems this to be ‘slightly dull.’

Elsewhere during the discussion, Jane, who also starred in the 90s musical film Little Voice, admitted she’s always been nervous with ‘sexy’ roles and described herself as ‘not very good at them.’

Absolutely Fabulous, also known as Ab Fab, was created by Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders.
