“The thing that shocked and attracted me to Sybil was that she’s not like your usual period drama romantic figure and I relate to her a little bit. When I was at school all the other girls would talk about boyfriends and tra-la-la, but I wanted to get on and do something. Sybil struck a chord with me.

In the first series she knows she wants to do something, in the second series she finds her purpose.”
