An actress from the film industry and her spouse, a martial arts instructor, have both been sentenced to pr!son for child s*x offenses.
Zara Phythian, who acted in the film Doctor Strange alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, and her husband Victor Marke were both responsible for the s*xual assault of a young girl who was 13 years old.
In addition, Marke was responsible for the s*xual abuse of a girl who was 15 years old.
Phythian, who is 37 years old, was sentenced to eight years in pr!son at Nottingham Crown Court, while her husband, 59 years old, was sentenced to 14 years in pr!son.
Marke was called the “driving force behind the abuse” by the judge, Mark Watson.
The judge continued, addressing Phythian, saying: “Whilst you denied in cross-examination that you were besotted with Victor Marke, on the evidence I have heard I am in no doubt that your deviance was shaped by the influence that he had upon you from an early age.”
The court was told that the couple first met when he was Phythian’s martial arts instructor. Phythian went on to have a successful career in martial arts and as a stuntwoman and actor.
Between 2002 and 2003, Marke, who resided on Mavis Avenue in Ravenshead, Nottinghamshire, was accused of four charges of indecently abusing a child.

Between 2005 and 2008, the two were jointly charged with 14 counts of engaging in s*xual behavior with a minor.
They both claimed they did not commit the crimes, but a jury found them guilty. On Monday, they were given their sentences in the same court.
Marke, who abused the girl by himself, was given a sentence of four years in pr!son, and Phythian, who beat the second victim with Marke, was granted ten years of impr!sonment. Both of the victims were from Taurus Close in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

Phythian, who was prosecuted under her married name Zara Marke, was sentenced to eight years for abusing the second victim. Phythian’s trial was conducted under her married name.
The court heard from the first victim, who claimed that what Marke did to her “nearly broke my mother.”
In a victim impact statement in front of the judge, the second victim expressed gratitude to the first woman for reporting the crime to the authorities.
She said that at 13, she was “cheeky and socially awkward” and an ideal target for the two people.
“You robbed me of my innocence, corrupted me… leaving me unable to create good and balanced relationships,” she stated.
As Phythian was being led away to the cells, a woman in the public gallery yelled, “I love you, Zara.” Phythian waved as she was being led away.
