I started working on stage as a dancer when I was four; by 14 or 15, I knew I wanted to study the craft of acting.
I'd like to see someone try to make Cush Jumbo up. It's my real name.
I'd much rather play the psycho than the pretty girl in hot pants.
I'm not interested in being in 'Heat Magazine.'
I've learnt that you never know what is around the corner, so it's best to enjoy the ride.
Most of my friends are not actors. Most people have an idea of what an actor's life is, and it's pure glamour and excitement: it's easy and free and everyone loves you. But with a certain level of fame, there's a real level of paranoia and depression that comes with what you do, that nobody talks about.
