Is there a quote you live by? “There’s one that I love from Hamlet by Shakespeare. I was on stage when this line was spoken and I just always used to hold on to it. It’s in the middle of the speech that Polonius (who played my dad) says to Laertes and Ophelia which is: ‘This above all: to thine ownself be true’. And it’s part of a massive speech about his advice about life. But I think ‘Know who you are and be true to yourself’, I sort of try and stick by that when I can.”
