I always had a very strong sense of independence. I really liked being able to buy my Alanis Morissette 'Jagged Little Pill' album. I wore that as a badge of honor. I love not having to rely on anyone.

Some suggestions for you :

I think there is an enormous appetite for great roles for women.

When you're a skateboarder or a snowboarder, it affects the way you talk, the way you move, the way you interact with the world and other people.

If the part isn't always there on the page, I've had good relationships with writers where there's an openness to bring more to the role.

I have a great plain blue shirt from APC, and a denim one from Dolce that I wear constantly. It's hard to find the perfect denim shirt, but this is it.

I'd love to do more comedy. It'd just be nice to go into work and not be crying every day. Some broad slapstick would be great. Falling over banana skins would be wonderful.

I think actors always find the dialogue doesn't quite fit, so you always have to play with it.

I was thinking 'Love Story', obviously, was a romantic film of that time.

I learnt circus skills in drama group, so I can juggle.

I'm used to doing independent film where the style is a lot more casual. With improvising, you obviously find so much out on the day - and in a way, I feel more comfortable doing that.

I usually have two or three books on the go at the same time. If I'm in different moods, I want to read different things.

The key is working with great directors. A film is so many different people and all their talents, but particularly the directors, because of the idiosyncrasies of that person.

I think human nature is eternal and constant.

I'm interested in all forms of performance, yet I think it's difficult to be as equally talented in all of them as they call for such different skills. At the moment, I still feel I'm learning and want as much experience and variety as possible.

I'm more of a freestyle dancer. I like to do my own thing.
