Confusion is rampant at the Los Angeles Times offices where Maria Bello and the cast and crew of the TV series Prime Suspect are filming a new episode.
The filming coincided with the visit of the Greek Foreign Minister and his attendant police and security service detail to the editorial board of the Times to discuss economic matters.
So with both real and fake cops milling around it is not surprising that the amiable Maria Bello started chatting to someone she believed was a Prime Suspect actor dressed as a cop when it was in fact a real cop guarding the Greek foreign minister.
"Oh sorry," she apologised when she realised her mistake. "I thought you were one of ours."
