Yikes, that looks a nasty wound!

Holby City star Rosie Marcel has posted a bloody shot of her acting as Jac Naylor to support the campaign to Save the Arts.

The 43-year-old actress was one of many stars to put up shots of themselves doing their job in the industry in a bid to get the government to support the arts through the covid crisis.

The campaign appears to have been a success as the government has now pledged a £1.57bn support package to help places like theatres and galleries.

And the Holby City star certainly picked out a dramatic picture to support the campaign! It appears to show Jac Naylor with a huge wound in her back and blood pouring out! That certainly is a lot of blood!!

Rosie wrote on Instagram: “To all professionals in the film, television and arts world. Join the challenge to post a photo of you doing your job. Just a picture, no description. The goal is to flood social media with our profession. Copy the text and post a pic. #savethearts #savetheartsuk.”

Other famous names to have supported the campaign include The Man in a High Castle actor Rufus Sewell, Torchwood’s John Barrowman, former Casualty star Paterson Joseph and Coronation Street legend Kevin Kennedy. It's hoped the cash from the government can stop theatres closing, as they face a financial crisis after having to shut their doors.
