LONDON – Fans of the Millwall Lions had little to cheer about in their team’s loss to Brighton on Saturday, but a trio of special guests from Los Angeles brightened things up for the crowd considerably.Three cast members of Fox Reality’s upcoming “reality” program My Bare Lady – a show that poses the question “Can four adult stars become legitimate actors?” – were guests of honor for Saturday’s game, in which the Lions fell to Brighton 1-0.
My Bare Lady will air as a three hour, three show series in which four adult film stars travel to London and elsewhere to receive formal training for the stage, culminating in a performance of Anton Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard at London’s Garrick Theatre.
Cast member Sasha Knox, who will reportedly be joined on the show’s cast by fellow adult stars Chanel St. James and Nautica Thorn, said she enjoyed the match.
“I had never been to an English football match before but it was really exciting,” Knox said, according to a report on ICLondon.com. “The crowd were really passionate and the game was so violent – but it was great fun.”
A spokesman for the Lions said he hopes the exposure on My Bare Lady will help Americans become a little more familiar with English football – the game we Yanks refer to as “soccer.”
“We hope the girls had a good time,” the spokesman said, “and hopefully when the series comes out in America people will get a glimpse of what life is like in an English football club and at Millwall in particular.”
The cast of My Bare Lady have been in London since late August, getting drilled on the finer points of stage acting by experts from the Italia Conti Academy for Theatre Arts. After the game on Saturday, the girls headed to Stratford-upon-Avon to visit the birthplace of The Bard himself, William Shakespeare.
The visit has left Knox quite taken with London, a city she says she could very well call home, someday.
“The past few weeks have been a revelation and I have fallen in love with London,” Knox said. “I can definitely see myself coming back and even living here.”
David Lyle, CEO & General Manager of Fox Reality, said his production company is “delighted to give these girls a chance to act in front of the generous London audiences.”
“It should be a wonderful opportunity for Los Angeles adult stars to broaden their horizons,” Lyle said, “and their wardrobes.”
