The chances of her being able to wear a bikini on stage are rather slim, so Louisa Lytton made sure she took a beach holiday before undertaking her latest role.
The 23-year-old actress was spotted sunning herself in an exotic location recently and showed off her enviable figure in a variety of two-pieces.
Lytton's getaway came just before the brunette was set to begin rehearsals for upcoming show A Broken Rose.

Cooling down: The actress relaxed in the shade before heading into the water to make a splash
The new play, which will run at The Cockpit from September 11 and will finish at the end of the month, means that Lytton will barely find time to socialise as she will spend most of the summer practising her latest role.
But she certainly made up for that on holiday and crammed in as much relaxation time as possible.
As she relaxed in the shade with a female friend, the former EastEnders star displayed her flat stomach and tanned body in a bright blue bandeau bikini.
The swimwear featured large gold rings on the briefs and Lytton carried a pair of brown sunglasses as she headed to the sea to cool down.

Fan of the two-piece: The actress brought several bikinis in her suitcase and made sure that she modelled all of them
Another day saw Lytton show off another bikini and this time she highlighted her slim figure in a patterned style that featured a halterneck top.
Rather than go for a swim, the British star decided to spend her day sitting on the decking with just her legs dangled in the water as she took in her surroundings.
However, she didn't stay relaxing for long as the next day she and her friend
decided to go for a ride on a jet ski.
The pair of them wore red life jackets but underneath Lytton was displaying her curves in yet another two-piece.
Making the most: Lytton was no doubt enjoying her relaxing holiday before returning to theatre rehearsals in the UK

This time she wore a white bandeau top with matching white briefs that featured an image of a male and female couple.
Now that she's back in the UK, Lytton has no doubt put her bikinis away as she heads off to rehearsals in London each day.
A Broken Rose is described as 'a powerful and harrowing new play' which tells the tragic tale of a young girl in search of adventure and truth.

Lytton takes on the lead role of Maria, who invents her own world to live in: a world of magic and beauty, that is far preferable to her own.
As the two worlds begin to blur together Maria is left struggling in the wake, unable to grasp hold of either.
Lytton's latest role follows her time with the British Shakespeare Company when she starred in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Much Ado About Nothing.
