Call the Midwife's newest star Megan Cusack waved placard at Kill the Bill protest 

She made her debut in Call The Midwife last night as a new pupil joining the nuns at Nonnatus House.

But these images show actress Megan Cusack, 24, in a rather different light – waving a four-letter placard at a 'Kill the Bill' rally outside Parliament.

The youngest member of the Cusack acting dynasty joined protesters on March 15 angry at Home Secretary Priti Patel for giving police more powers to prevent or quickly shut down demonstrations.

Miss Cusack was spotted with a placard bearing the words: '**** the racist, sexist police' accompanied by a picture of a pig.

She was also seen holding a sign reading: 'Sounds Priti ****ed to me. We will not be silenced.'

On her Twitter and Facebook accounts, she shared a picture of her wearing a white mask with '**** this!' written on it as she joined other protesters holding up a giant yellow 'Kill the Bill' banner. 

The demonstration was one of a number held across the country in protest at the Government's Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill.

Miss Cusack seems to have some issues with the Home Secretary – last week the actress tweeted: 'Wow I really woke up and the first thing on my mind was how much I despise Priti Patel.'

And she does not appear to be a fan of royalty either. The day after Prince Philip's death last month she shared an article about him on Facebook with the caption: 'Alexa play 'highway to hell'.'

Miss Cusack's grandfather was famed Irish actor Cyril Cusack. 

Her father is theatre producer Padraig Cusack and her aunts are the acting sisters Sinead, Niamh, Sorcha and Catherine Cusack. 

Her uncle is Sinead's husband Jeremy Irons and her cousin the actor Max Irons.

Representatives for Miss Cusack and Call The Midwife declined to comment last night.
