It's nice to have some continuity you can come back to. I feel that in coming home, coming back to London.
It was only after university that I said to myself that I had to take the risk and have a serious go at acting. It's such a bizarre profession, because you have to be totally tough to deal with all those times when you're being turned down, and then really soft in order to access your character's emotions.
You have to be brave and not always play likeable people. It's difficult, because there's a demand for the hero or heroine to be very likeable.
But for everyone, I think, there is always a pressure to conform, and I guess as you get older you realize it's less interesting to do that. It starts with you, though, saying, 'I know what I like doing and that's what I'm going to do.'
Day to day, I always wear eyeliner on my top lid and mascara. I like to do my own makeup, it depends on the event.
