I feel that even in this day and age people feel like they don’t have the right to be mentally ill, and I just think, if you broke your foot you would get an x-ray, and put it in a plaster cast and let it heal. And then you would do exercise to get it back to full health. It’s the same if you’re mentally unwell – go and speak to someone. It’s fine. (x)

Everyone just flies out and throws themselves around out in Hollywood. I’d rather keep on learning. Every job I do, I’m still learning. Whether it’s a short film that you do for free on a Saturday morning, or it’s The Village in Derbyshire, you’re learning and I just want to have the right scripts with the right directors, whether it’s film or drama it doesn’t really bother me at the moment. When you do Mad Fat Diary or The Village, you always learn about the particular time period and that’s always nice for an actor. I struggled at school ,so I’ve certainly been making up for it!”
