I'm quite a good listener, and I'm good at looking after people.
If you get a script and it's really well written, that's always exciting.
If the character is really well-rounded, and it's a really strong character, and if the writing is just fantastic, that's the thing that will hook me in, certainly.
I like being a mother.
I've always wanted to make sure people are okay, ever since I was a little girl.
I sometimes don't wash my hair for two weeks. That's pretty disgusting. It's short, so sometimes it's easier to just wet it.
