Hollywood actress Eva Longoria headed a star-studded charity dinner in Edinburgh and said she would love to film in Scotland.
Ms Longoria, principal guest at the inaugural Global Gift Foundation event held at the Waldorf Astoria Caledonian Hotel, said she was making her first visit to Edinburgh.
“How do you say it? Is it Edinburrow?” she asked the assembled media.
She admitted she had not tried haggis.
“What’s in it?” she asked, and was told it would be served during dinner, along with a dram of whisky. She said she intended to go for a jog and visit the castle before heading to Cannes this weekend.
Asked about her most famous role in the television series Desperate Housewives, she said she would like to see it return.
“I would do it in a heartbeat,” she said. “I loved Gabby Solis [her character]. I spent ten years of my life in Wisteria Lane and I miss the girls.”
She said she had teamed up with her long-time friend Maria Bravo who launched the Global Gift Foundation dedicated to making a difference for children and women.
“We decided we wanted to put some fun into fund-raising,” said Ms Longoria.
The dinner was also attended actress Patsy Palmer and the Scottish actor Craig McGinlay who appears in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
Other guests included the former Made in Chelsea star Ashley James, the television personality Katie Piper, and the Irish model, television and radio personality Vogue Williams.
