If you’re constantly frightened of being unhappy, how bloody exhausting must that be?
I think change is good because it teaches you that it’s nothing to be frightened of.
I’m a very positive person. My grandmother taught me that happiness is both a skill and a decision, and you are responsible for the outcome.
What really matters to me is what my peers think.
To be honest, my husband and my children are my best friends.
It’s what people create that makes my heart stop.
People are not considerate of others. They tend not to consider themselves as all living together, but see themselves only as individuals.
A script is only as good as the director who’s making it.
Theatre is liberating because it only works if it’s truthful, That’s what it requires. That’s not true of film: the camera does lie.
I was lucky to learn early in life that you need money for food and shelter, but there’s no ambition in having money in the bank for the sake of it!
When I was 14 I told my mother I intended to be in the House of Commons in the morning, in court in the afternoon and on stage in the evening. She realised then a fantasist had been born.
I think it’s very important not to grow up with the unhealthy amount of attention that is sometimes put on people because they are ‘actors’.
