I like to do new things, so I always take on roles that I feel will keep me on my toes. I never want to pigeon myself, so I always like to surprise myself. I believe in versatility and so I would play anything as long as it was a challenge.
I'd love to say I made the smart decision of picking projects that became hits, but with 'The Good Wife,' I read the script and something inside me said, 'I love this, I want to do this.'
The predictable thing about 'The Good Wife' is how unpredictable 'The Good Wife' is.
I've always been quite psychic and believe there's a reason why things happen and that we need to learn from them.
Sometimes my ethnicity is relevant, other times not. I definitely get the best of both worlds.
I went out for a film where they wanted seven brothers and one sister, so I was there for half a day while they were waiting for 'Archie' to read for a boy... I've had drivers come to pick me up in England looking for a blond, blue-eyed Scottish boy.
I am still married, yes - no children. I have Benzo, though; he's my dog, a Lhasa apso.
I'd love to do a romantic comedy. And perhaps, if the character was right and I had a good gut instinct, a Bollywood movie. And I'd love to direct. One day. I'm learning a lot on the set of 'The Good Wife.'
My mother wanted to be a teacher when she was young, and my father didn't approve of it, so she fought very hard to become one. And she did it. So when I said I wanted to become an actress, my mother was very supportive. She always said to me, 'There's no such thing as 'can't.'
When I was younger I was fat. I was never conscious of it and was content with who I was because I was so loved. My mother never told me to lose weight and my father doted on me, but my agent told me. I tried, but I loved Indian food too much.
At the end of the week, it's nice to just hang out in a pair of jeans and let my hair down. I need a break from all that fashion!
I am one of the new characters in the brand new series of 'Postman Pat.' It has been a joy to do.
I like to cook Indian food when I can. I find the process of creating a home-cooked meal to be unwinding.
I loved eating and I did put on weight. I never actually felt fat until I started going for castings, for auditions.
Luckily my parents were not against my ambition, they've always been very supportive. But they were adamant that I went to university first.
