  • Actress Zara Phythian has been jailed for eight years at Nottingham Crown Court
  • Her husband Victor Marke was also sentenced to 14 years’ imprisonment
  • Judge Watson said he believed the start of the sexual abuse was pre-planned

Film actress Zara Phythian has been jailed for eight years at Nottingham Crown Court for the historical sexual abuse of a girl who was aged between 13 and 15.

Phythian’s husband Victor Marke was sentenced to 14 years’ imprisonment for jointly abusing the same victim, as well as the indecent assault of a second girl.

Passing sentence, Judge Mark Watson told the couple that he believed the start of the sexual abuse of the joint victim had been pre-planned. 

Phythian, who starred with Benedict Cumberbatch in the Marvel movie Doctor Strange, plied the teen with rum before making her perform a sex act on her partner.

The 36-year-old and Victor Marke would abuse the girl ‘once or twice a month’ at their home over a three year period from 2005.

The judge told Marke: ‘I regard you as the driving force behind the abuse. You were clearly aware of the first incident but pretended to be asleep.

‘This could only have been a ruse agreed in advance.’

During the sentencing, the judge also said that Phythian’s ‘deviance’ was shaped by the influence that Marke had on her from an early age.
