What else did Lydia West appear in?

Lydia is a young actress who is relatively new to television.

Her first television role was in Russell T Davies’ ITV drama Years and Years in 2019.

Lydia portrayed Bethany Bisme-Lyons in the six-part opposite Russell Tovey, Rory Kinnear, Emma Thompson and Anne Reid.

Viewers will remember that tech addict Bethany wanted to become “transmhuman.”

Lydia played as Lucy Westenra in the BBC’s sexy Dracula adaptation in 2020.

She also appeared on Higher Grounds as Bridget before Russell T Davies cast her again – this time in his new drama It’s a Sin.

Lydia is currently shooting two new TV series called Suspicion and Text for You.

Who does Lydia West play in It’s a Sin?

Lydia plays Jill Baxter in the 80s drama It’s a Sin.

Lydia describes Jill as “a very kind, sweet, generous 18 year old girl from Woking”.

She moved to London to attend university, where she met Ash and Ritchie.

The gang lives a typically rough life at university until the threat of AIDS and HIV is upon them.

The character of Jill is based on someone Russell T Davies knew in the 80s.

Lydia explains, “The day before reading through, Russell informed me that Jill existed, that she is one of his friends and that she is playing my mother!

“The fact that I was chosen to play a character who was inspired by someone so close to Russell is just a great honor and I’m very proud of it.”

Jill Nalder, the inspiration for Lydia’s character, plays Jill’s mother on the show.
