Celeb interview: Lucy Davis, The Office
Lucy Davis
Lucy Davis
For everyone who's ever worked in one, the BBC comedy The Office will have you cringing and giggling in equal measures - it's so true to life and yet so bizarre - you don't know whether to laugh or pledge never to step foot in an office again - just in case!

One of the stars of The Office is Lucy Davis, who plays Dawn, the put upon receptionist who is going to shock a few people in the new series...

How did you get the part in The Office?
It was December 99 and I'd been up for a couple of pilots for the BBC and this was one of them and it was the one that I liked and I just thought I really want to be part of this and fortunately that was the one that came through.

What's it like filming it - is it a really good laugh?
We don't stop laughing, it's fantastic cos I just think this is seven weeks now of just laughing. It's brilliant.

Your career has been so varied from the Archers (where you play Hayley) period dramas, and this.
It's good for me as an actor because you like to play different roles, so you end up having quite a good show reel anyway.

Most people probably won't know about your famous dad - Jasper Carrott - have you tried to keep that as low-profile as possible?
Yes - it doesn't really work. When I first started out it was just important that we kept our careers separate, largely because my dad had always been really private with his family.
