I did an A Level in Theatre Studies and had a really inspirational teacher, and then I just went on to university.
My first acting experience was a non-speaking role as a robot. My costume was a cardboard box covered in tinfoil, but I was so shy I refused to go on stage.
After filming, I cant wait to shake off all that 50s primness. Ill go out to a gig and dance ridiculously. I love to lose myself in music. Just letting go - its dead important.
I have a lot of Breton striped top and silk shirts that always feel good. I also like things with a masculine edge and dislike anything too girly.
I always knew that the only thing I wanted to do was act, but it took me a long time to say it out loud to anyone, let alone myself. I am surprised by how dogged I have been in wanting to make a living as a respected actress.

I have a really adaptable face, but when I am just being me, people always think I am younger than I am.
For any role, I pretty much always go to the script, first and foremost.
My fondest memories are of watching lambs being delivered.

Im certainly not squeamish at all. The countryside makes you very aware of birth and death.
