'Incredibly shocking' teen rape drama Three Girls sickens viewers

And while starring in acclaimed BBC drama, Three Girls, Lisa has been getting lots of praise from the audience for her moving performance.

"So all my life, 39 years, I get in the shower thinking, "oh wow, heaven" - and I thought, 'oh wow, there's nothing to lift up!'" I remember distinctly when I was younger growing up as a teenager in high school I was told never get in a taxi by yourself.

'Three Girls' concluded on Thursday night with a completely absorbing finale, by turns disturbing and inspiring as some of the victims of grooming had their day in court, and were believed.

Three Girls therefore did not come as a surprise to those of us who are familiar with this territory but I can understand the shock waves it has caused among its many viewers - especially members of the general public.

The star, who's gone through a major body transformation, said: "We had three and a half months last august filming it".

"The drama looks at the way in which these girls were groomed, how they were ignored by the authorities directly responsible for protecting them, and how they eventually made themselves heard", said a spokeswoman for the BBC.

At least 47 girls were raped and passed around the group after being plied with alcohol in the highly-publicised case. It demonstrates the importance of those who need help and support being able to tell their stories on their own terms - not ours.

Watching this series has evoked strong emotional reactions, including anger.
