PRIME SUSPECT 1973 starlet Stefanie Martini has revealed her adaption of Helen Mirren’s now infamous detective Jane Tennison will be a far cry from the heroine which launched the latter as a household name.
Apple Tree Yard starring Emily Watson and Ben Chaplin, contained a number of sex scenes – including a traumatic rape scene
She’s clumsy and messy and much softer than the previous version of the character

“Jane’s eager and keen though, and puts herself forward to contribute and be involved in the case, but doesn’t really know the procedures behind everything and the right and wrong ways to do things. She’s clumsy and messy and much softer than the previous version of the character."
The original Prime Suspect, written by Lynda La Plante, ran from 1991 to 2006 and won eight BAFTAs - including four for Helen, 71, as Best Leading Actress.
