A boob job well done as Ingrid bares all for stars; WHEN ACTORS WON'T STRIP, THE IRISH BODY BEAUTIFUL STEPS IN.
But while Irish-born Ingrid Bradley's name doesn't roll off the tongue, she has been seen by millions throughout the world as she regularly steps in as a naked double for shy stars.
With an impressive 34C-23-35 figure, Ingrid, 32, often mixes with the rich and famous. But she is far from star-struck.
Even 007 Pierce Brosnan failed to tickle her fancy during the filming of the latest Bond adventure, The World is Not Enough.
After being called in to do a Millennium Dome scene, she said of Brosnan: "He is shorter than I thought he was. He is a bit thin, not my idea of hunky. But he is a very nice bloke."
Born in Wicklow, Ingrid moved to England when she was six.
Most of her family were in the entertainment business.
"Some are actors, some are entertainers and some are involved in fairgrounds and the like, so I am no stranger to this world," she explained.
Among her many appearances on film and television, Ingrid was able to take a weight off Bonham-Carter's chest in Kenneth Branagh's Frankenstein.
The English megastar was too embarrassed to appear topless.
Ingrid also appeared naked for TV's Janus, did a nude sketch with comedian Harry Enfield - a "lovely man" - and is the regular barmaid in the firefighting drama London's Burning.
Her most awkward moment came after taking a nude bath with Colin Firth, a star of the Oscar- winning film Shakespeare in Love.
"I had to get stripped off first, and then he had to get his kit off. He was embarrassed by the whole thing," she said. "But afterwards he was a bit taken with me.
"The crew all started singing `Falling in Love Again'. That was really embarrassing."
So why does she get the work?
She said "I suppose it either costs too much to get the stars to go naked or they are too shy or they don't like their bodies."
Ingrid is not married, but has a steady boyfriend. "He looks like a young Clint Eastwood," she said.
