Former Neighbours star Caitlin Stasey is set to have sexplicit scenes cut from a new US drama.
The 23-year old actress stars as handmaiden to Mary Queen Of Scots - also played by an Australian actress, Adelaide Kane - in historical television series Reign.
The pilot episode screens in the US on the CW network this week and features Stasey's character pleasuring herself on a castle stairwell after watching two newlyweds make love.
The King of France, played by Alan Van Sprang, catches her and offers to sleep with her instead.
The steamy scene will remain in the show, but the more explicit footage has been cut.
It could be the big break in the US the Tomorrow When The War Began star has been waiting for, with the actress building a slow and steady body of work in TV and film productions.
Roles on CW shows have proved key for her former co-star Phoebe Tonkin (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals) and Aussies Claire Holt (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals), Nathaniel Buzolic (The Vampire Diaries) and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow) - all of whom have cracked the Hollywood market.
