She's used to being well covered up on set while she wears her garda uniform in Red Rock, but actress Jane McGrath has admitted she wouldn't rule out stripping off for a role.

The soap star, who plays garda Sharon Cleere in the TV3 drama, revealed that she would be willing to go nude for the right acting job.

"If it's needed and it serves the story then that's fine, but if it's purely for shock factor I wouldn't really be interested," she told the Diary.

It wouldn't be the first time Jane has been exposed in front of the camera - the Dublin actress, who also featured in the hit show Game of Thrones, had to film topless scenes for BBC's crime series Silent Witness.

Jane admitted she found the experience quite strange, saying: "I was on a post mortem table and it was a pretty weird feeling having the doctors fiddling at you.

"You just have to lie there and think about happy things."

Things reach boiling point on this week's Red Rock between Jane's character Sharon and her bad-cop colleague Brian, played by Sean McMahon, who is having an affair with 15-year-old schoolgirl Rachel Reid.

Red Rock airs every Wednesday and Thursday on TV3 at 8.30pm.
