Mutual Friends
Naomi Bentley as Anita

Mutual Friends



Naomi Bentley plays Anita


Writer Anil Gupta says: "Anita is a no-nonsense sort who has the classic northern 'virtue' of plain-speaking.

 

"Or she's just rude, depending on your point of view.

 

"She loves Dev but looks on him as an overgrown child. She regards herself as Leigh's best friend and is fiercely protective of that position."

 

Naomi elaborates: "Anita is quite a lot younger than the rest, but sees herself as a bit of a motherly figure.

 

"She's a gossip, likes to be at the centre of things, is competitive of friendship and materialistic, too.

 

"She feels her husband, Dev, is completely incompetent and she is very controlling, quite hard and blunt.

 

"They have a gorgeous little girl, and this is the first time I've played a mum."
