A grandmother has won international fame - with a role in Les Miserables.

Film extra Linda Payne features in key scenes alongside stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway.

The 59-year-old of Armond Road, Witham, played a quality controller in the factory where Hathaway’s character, Fantine, is a worker.

Linda said: “It was fun, yes I would do it again but no I wouldn’t do it for a living.

“I woudn’t like my mortgage to depend on it.”
