I never really excelled in any particular subject, but I was just alright at all of them. I never really knew what I wanted to do until I discovered drama.
I was born in Cambridge but brought up in and around Winchester, in Hampshire. I've also lived in Hong Kong and America.
Sometimes when I'm not working, I go and teach at an acting school, and quite selfishly, that makes me feel more inspired to do things myself.
Auditions are so much fun. A lot of people dread auditions; they think they have to do it in order to get the job. I don't really mind if I don't get the job, as long as I get to do something interesting in the audition. It makes me feel more creative as a person.
I got into university to study graphic design, and I got into drama school as well, so I had the choice whether I wanted to go down the sensible route or if I wanted to become an actor.
