Tipping the Velvet actress Rachel Stirling said she found it hard to be taken seriously as an actress after she took part in the lesbian film.
It was a brilliant project and I don’t regret it, but there wasn’t a lot of aftercare and the long-term effects weren’t considered.

When Grey’s Anatomy returns at the end of September, Arizona better be alive, and that’s all I am going to say. I’m looking at you, Shonda Rhimes. The show’s creator told EW:
I can’t say anything other than [Callie and Arizona’s arc] is interesting. There’s a big story this year in the Callie camp – but that’s all I’m going to say.
