Determination becomes obsession and then it becomes all that matters.
I've always been into dark colours.
When I find a look that I like, that's my entire wardrobe.
My bedroom's like an armoury.
I think that among my friends I'm known as being a hard worker; I think if you want to be an actor, there can't be any compromise. You have to work all day, every day. It's not a 9-5 job. There's always something to learn.
I'm the biggest Chekov fan - there's something that he does that not many other writers do.
I had a great drama teacher, and he sort of made out drama school as this incredibly difficult thing to get into: 6,000 people apply every year, and some of the schools only have 12 places. It's a phenomenally difficult thing to get into. And that excited me - I wanted that challenge.
All actors have to change their name.
I feel arrogant trying to give people advice.
I'm not really an animal person.
There's nothing nicer than coming back to your village, where people like my mum's friends take the mick out of me. I prefer that to the craziness of Hollywood.
You can be the best actor in the world, but if you don't have that one lucky moment, it kind of doesn't matter. There are a lot of amazing actors who will never get the chance to prove themselves because they won't have that one lucky moment.
Every time I get a role I think, 'I've actually fooled them again, I can't believe they keep falling for this!'
If a horse doesn't want to do something, you're not going to make him do it. They're incredibly powerful animals.
The work my mum does, a lot of it is re-housing homeless people, that's a real job. I play make-believe and dressing up for a living!
