If you actually truly are able to sacrifice a lot of yourself for the person you love, that's pretty extraordinary.
I started off when I was seven years old doing musicals. I was in 'Les Miserables' and 'The Sound of Music,' and my mum's an actress. My parents divorced when I was young, and when she couldn't find a babysitter, I was in the wings, sleeping.
I love doing interviews that are about work that I do, films that I make. I am not very interested in the rest. I think I have always been quite reserved and a bit frightened of that whole thing.
I was able to actually combine dance and acting, which was a dream come true.
I think I'm a big romantic, so being part of those stories, that's such a big part of anyone's life in general, that's such a humane thing.
