My dad had a personal style which was very attractive. It was quite reserved and quite elegant and it was infectious.
I don’t seem to be able to learn from experience or anything useful. History doesn’t help me. Precedents don’t inform my experience.
Actors always talk about taking their work home and I always think: ‘What are you on? You just turn it off. You are at work and then you go home.’
Anyone who can do the splits and come back up on the backbeat as James Brown and Prince can has my eternal respect. Prince who is a genius of the highest order can come back up while singing and playing the guitar.
It can’t be overstated how wonderful it is not to have to audition any more. Any actor will tell you it’s like Christmas.
I don’t even own a car.
I like being in kids’ movies and I like being in family movies.
I’m not a royal family watcher.
When you have a family or even when you’re just seeing a girl it’s difficult to be skint.
I know really really famous people who are terrified every time they walk on to a stage.
I’m not famous for my back story investigations I’m lucky that I work with good writers and it’s usually in the script.
