Crimes Against Acting

‘ANYONE who has ever watched EastEnders knows that if justice prevailed, Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace would be arrested for crimes against acting and jailed for a long time.

Sadly, this has yet to pass, but we have heard that soap stars in Croatia have not been so lucky.

The cast members of the Croatian soap opera Villa Maria were filming scenes in the northern village of Pregrada when police swooped.

The scene demanded that actors drive around in unmarked cars – and the police were not having that. So they arrested the entire cast and crew.

Said Croatian actress Ksenija Pajic: ‘The officers did not want to accept our documents and the explanation that we were filming a small part of the soap opera.’

The cast were released hours later when an officer recognised Pajic.’
