THE OFFICE star Lucy Davis has lost over 15 kilograms (34 pounds) in a bid to boost her Hollywood career.

The actress has three movie roles in the pipeline, off the back of the success of the British version of the comedy series - including GARFIELD II, and THE TV SET.

And she admits taking her career further was a good extra incentive to slim down.

Davis, 32, says, "I've been trying to lose weight for ten years .

"I've had my career as an incentive for years and one day it just clicked and it happened. I like being slimmer. I feel much more in control of myself."
