In character actor Helen Vine can explore life in its different guises. But, a couple of years ago, she was forced to quit a production.
The abuse, Helen says, was sustained and inescapable with constant remarks.
And in one incident, in a van, on tour, she was photographed whilst sleeping.
Helen took her case to actor's union Equity which is working on new guidelines to change the culture.
At the tribunal, the director and actor who harassed Helen described their actions as a 'joke'.
