    Glad she’ll be back on tv soon. I can’t wait to see her on the show.

  2. Apples says:

    Love her since ‘Single Father’ opposite David Tennant and Suranne Jones.

  3. JBC says:

    STEVIA….. that’s all I can say!! LOL. Glad she has a new gig. She seems to be a very good actress.

  4. DanielleZ says:

    I’ve always found Lydia an intriguing character on Breaking Bad and thought the actress looked familiar but never knew her name. I looked up Laura Fraser and discovered she is Scottish, something I didn’t know, and that I’ve seen her in 3 movies I liked: A Knight’s Tale, Vanilla Sky and 16 Years of Alcohol. I’ll probably give Black Box a try when it airs.

  5. John says:

    Lydia was simply a very compelling character with her minor ticks and eccentricities. I’m definitely excited for this new show, especially with Redgrave in it as well.

  6. Arminda Figueroa says:

    Yay!!! I love Laura Fraser and very excited to see her in a new gig!

  7. Lucy says:

    Black Box has really grown on me and I hope it’s not too “limited” because I want to see it continue. Ditch the chef boyfriend (huge mismatch) and find someone else. Great show!
