It's all about perfection, isn't it?
Film is a much lonelier process than theatre. You really don't have any rehearsal time in film. You don't shape it together... with theatre, there is a complete kind of family atmosphere. The sociable side of this business is the theatrical side, it really isn't the film side.
If only I wasn't an atheist, I could get away with anything. You'd just ask for forgiveness and then you'd be forgiven. It sounds much better than having to live with guilt.
My upbringing is why I am the person I am today. I have very wise parents.

If only I wasn't an atheist, I could get away with anything.
Nice is the worst word.
I cook. I go to farmers markets in London and cook really good sort of organic foods.
I am a slow reader. I always loved words, which is a strange thing given that I couldn't actually read them.
I think every girl is looking for her Mr. Darcy.
I started working when I was seven, and ever since then I've been saving for an apartment. Even before that I had a little jam jar designated for my apartment money.
I find more interesting roles for women in period pieces. I do personally like watching period films; I think you can really get lost in the fantasy of them.
I really believe that in this industry women have to be very true to themselves about what they're comfortable with.
And we're fortunate if we have parents who are great and loving and inspiring. But, unfortunately, there are people who don't have that.
