A court jury is considering the verdicts in the case of the actress and her husband, charged with historical charges of having sex with children.
Zara Fitian and Victor Mark are accused of jointly abusing a girl in her early teens between 2005 and 2008.
Mark is also accused of indecently attacking a 15-year-old girl between 2002 and 2003.
Phythian, 37, is a martial arts instructor who co-starred with Benedict Cumberbatch as Brunette Zealot in the 2016 Marvel film Dr Strange.
She told the court she had no sexual contact with the girl. She denies 14 charges of sexual activity with a child.
Mark, 59, also a martial arts instructor, said he had sex with one of the alleged victims when she was over the legal age of consent.
He denied 14 allegations of sexual activity with a child and four allegations of indecent assault.
Both defendants are from the Mansfield area of Nottinghamshire.
Jurors at the Royal Court in Nottingham withdrew to hear their sentences Tuesday morning.
