"I would go into rehearsal rooms where people had been to RADA or Oxford and just tug my forelock. My parents didn’t take me to the theatre to see Chekhov when I was growing up we went to see Francie and Josie once every five years. It might sound odd because I always seemed very arrogant but I was actually terrified. I wasted years fretting about it all, trying to do the right thing, being neurotic, but there was actually nothing to worry about."
