Lara Pulver thinks her naked scenes in Sherlock have given her a bit of a reputation.

The actress, 33, memorably appeared nude opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in her role as dominatrix Irene Adler and now people in the TV industry seem to associate her with pushing the boundaries.

‘[Casting directors have] said, "We need the naughtiness, the darkness, the danger - Lara!"' she says.

‘I'm little Miss Naughty!'

Lara gets even racier in her new series Fleming, where she plays the wife of James Bond writer Ian Fleming.

Sex scenes with Dominic Cooper, who takes the role of the author, became so explicit and violent that they had to be toned down for television.

‘There was something unspoken being Dom and I,' Lara tells The Sun.

‘We were like, "Are we in this? If we're in it, we're IN it." [The Flemings] had an adventurous sex life, there will be a flavour of spanking.

‘They're these two people who wonder how far they can push each other and it goes on and on...

‘There are many moments where we are at each other's throats, then we're having sex.'

Fleming starts on 12 February at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
