Lauren Ambrose has admitted that she enjoyed playing a villain in Torchwood: Miracle Day.

The Six Feet Under actress told New York Magazine that she had tried to find the positive qualities of scheming PR guru Jilly Kitzinger.

"The good thing about playing a villain is to realise that everyone has a soul," she explained. "She's got a lot of good qualities [and] she's just doing her job."

She continued: "I might not make the same choices or be able to stomach the same things [as Jilly]. I mean, it's... a pretty despicable job."

Ambrose added that her Torchwood role is "pretty unlike anything else I've ever done".

"I thought it would be a really fun thing to do," she said. "'Ruthless PR woman' is not exactly my usual fare."

Ambrose also praised her co-star Eve Myles, claiming she is now "obsessed" with the Welsh actress.

"I just love [her]," she admitted. "I worked hard to even make sense of her accent, it really is a tricky one. But I'm obsessed with her, and I became obsessed with the Welsh accent. Everything sounds... super sing-songy and fabulous."

Myles previously told Digital Spy that she had acted like an "absolute berk" meeting Ambrose, after admiring her performance in Six Feet Under.

Torchwood: Miracle Day continues on Fridays at 9/8c on Starz in the US and on Thursdays at 9pm on BBC One in the UK.
