Dominic West and Emily Watson both collected awards for their parts in a controversial ITV drama about serial killer Fred West.
Dominic West, who played West in Appropriate Adult, said: âEveryone thinks weâre related now.
âBut thank you very much, Iâve never won an award before!â?
The judges praised West for a performance which was âshockingly, wittily and superbly captured the most horrific characteristic of a serial killer: his terrifying charm”.
Watson, who played the eponymous appropriate adult, Janet Leach, was named Best Female Actor beating off This Is England star Vicky McClure.
The judges said she was “subtle, nuanced and utterly compelling, an incredibly skilled and extraordinary portrayal of an ordinary woman by an actor at the height of her powers”.
Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani won the Comedy Performance for BBC comedy Him and Her, with the judges praising their “perfect partnership” which they said was “understated but wickedly funny”.
Solemani spoke to OTB about the show which is due to start filming a third series in Spring: âWe filmed one pilot in a flat in Willesden and we didnât know if the BBC would like it but when picked the series and people responded to it we were so thrilled.
âWe loved it but we didnât know if people would get the intimacy that we were trying to capture.â?
So are the pair going to move out of that flat?
Russell Tovey told us: âI doubt it – but we never know until we get the script but itâs exciting times.
âYou assume the characterâs going to do this and this and this but then Stefan Golaszewskiâs writing completely hits you right from the side and youâre like âoh thatâs whatâs happening!â?.
