  1. If I was ambitious in my career, then I would have moved to the United States and given it a good go at films.

  3. ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ and ‘Downton Abbey’ appeal to people because they’re about our history, they look so beautiful, are written by amazing writers and have high production values.
  4. In the adverts, I look like I do because 150 people have spent seven hours making me look dazzling. That’s not me at all.
  5. My husband is the chef of the family; he’s a brilliant cook. Actually, it makes you quite lazy when you have somebody that’s so good at cooking under the same roof. It’s all beans or spaghetti when I’m left to run it.
  6. I’m a size 12 and I’m very happy with it.
  7. We’re not an acting family, but my parents have always encouraged me.
  8. I’ve never seen an episode of ‘Downton Abbey.’

  14. I went on two holidays as a child. It wasn’t what people did where I grew up.
  15. I don’t punish myself. Life’s too short.
  16. I’ve nothing against stay-at-home mums, but I love going to work, I love what I do and I wouldn’t want to start resenting my home life if I was staying home 365 days a year.
  17. I hope to be still acting when I’m 70 on TV, film and theatre.
  18. Coming from a family where the parents had been together for 40 years, you never imagine that divorce is going to happen to you.
  19. I happen to know there is nothing sexy or romantic about love scenes. They are just awful to do.
  20. There are lots of actors who are posh and stick with that, and there are lots of actors who are cockney, and that’s what they do. That’s fine, but I don’t think that could be said about me.
