The best moment of playing (William Shakespeare's) Juliet is the nanosecond when they offer you the part.
National treasure? I hate that. Too dusty, too in a cupboard, too behind glass too staid. I don't want to be thought of as recognisable - I always want to do the most different thing I can think of next. I don't want to be known for one thing, or as having done huge amounts of Shakespeare and the classics. I hate speaking as myself. I could never do a one-woman show. But I love being part of a company. On stage I am not trying to be myself, I'm trying to be someone else, the more unlike me the better. I remember someone who saw me in Juno and the Paycock said I was completely unrecognisable. How marvellous. I've done two sitcoms, lots of films. Look at my character (an obsessive, damaged stalker) in Notes on a Scandal. You wouldn't want to ask her around.
There are very few things that surprise me.
Work certainly does help fill a void.
I am so thrilled to be nominated for something I loved working on every single day.
