[My proudest moment...] was my mum watching me in the West End when I was in Entertaining Mr Sloane.
[You may not know it but I'm no good at...] skiing. It always feels like loads of effort for very little reward.
[To wake myself up I...] have a strong cup of tea - white, with three sugars.
[The most romantic thing anyone's ever done for me is...] nothing really. People don't really do romantic things for me. I don't know why. I'm single at the moment but I can be quite the romantic in relationships. When I like someone, she'll know about it.
