SOLARIS star Natasha Mcelhone was the perfect choice to play a nun in new US TV drama REVELATIONS - because she grew up dreaming of giving her life to God.

The London-born Irish Catholic was a very religious child, but as she approached adolescence her desire to be a nun quickly evaporated.

She says, "I think I desperately wanted to be religious as a child. I went to a convent for a short period of time and I think, along with everyone, I intended to become a nun for about a week."
