Star Tom has red light role.
SCOTS star Tom Conti has been caught hanging around London's red light district - but it's all for research.
The Shirley Valentine heart-throb is researching the ways of men who frequent brothels.
Conti, 65, claims it is research for his latest role in the new British gangster film Paid, in which he plays a drug dealer addicted to prostitutes.
It has meant some late nights in London's red light districts.
But Conti - once linked to the late Princess Diana -- is determined to bring as much realism to the role as possible.
He said: "I've had a lot of odd looks because I've been standing outside these establishments, with the girls in the window, checking out the clientele.
"I must look a bit shifty - but it's all in the name of art. I'm interested in seeing who goes into these places and how they approach the door."
And he revealed: "Usually of course it's as quickly as possible."
