As Charlie, Sarah Parish had to recreate the iconic bar scene where Maverick attempts to serenade her with a rendition of You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling.

Parish said she’s giving us “a near-perfect impression of the great Kelly McGillis” and that while filming, “tongue jousting with Keith was both funny and alarming in equal measures!” Lovely.

The actress is a regular on UK TV having worked on British classics like Doctor Who and Merlin. She played the role of Cath Atwood in the third season of the ITV crime drama Broadchurch and recently played the lead role of Detective Elizabeth Bancroft in the ITV show Bancroft.

Paul Elliott – aka Paul Chuckle
