When I first auditioned for drama school I went down to London the night before, and I remember going to see a play. I actually went to see this actress that I knew in it, called Helen McCrory. I’ve never seen anybody on stage like her. She was absolutely electrifying. I’ve never seen anybody so full of basically every single thing… it was a Shakespeare play, and ever since then I’ve watched all of her performances on stage. She’s doing Medea at the moment at the National Theatre. There are certain performances and certain actresses… Emma Thompson I think is just delightful. Ruth Wilson too, who’s a young actress, I saw her in A Streetcar Named Desire [at the Donmar Warehouse] not long ago. Marion Cotillard as well. Her performances are so beautiful and intelligent.
You were human when you crashed here. It was you who climbed out of the pod. That was your ladder…. Because you’re right. You’re a genius. And the Daleks need genius. They didn’t just make you a puppet. They did a full conversion.
