On actor's being typecast:
I think every actor is typecast. You have to remind yourself, I can do this for a long, long time, and there’s so much time to reinvent yourself or move in a totally different direction. I’ve just had this feeling that I can’t get rid of recently — and sometimes what you think is right for you is total nonsense anyway — that I’ve wanted to step away from playing characters that feel quite honest and open. There’s a goodness to them that I want to get away from.

On meeting Meryl Streep:
She was singing this song, and it’s a beautiful song, and it made me cry. You’ve got to hold it together because she’s coming over. I just hugged her and said hi. She’s such a cool woman.

On attending a ERA 50:50 meeting:
It’s not just actresses moaning for more money. It’s about the direct impact on our communities, and that extends to all things with diversity and women. It’s got to be fixed. I’ve got to get more involved.

On no one recognizing her:
I can just hang out in bowling alleys with loads of kids. I don’t think people expect to see Cinderella in jeans bowling at midday or in a pub having a pint.
