I just believe that sometimes in life you're like a shark - you have to keep moving through water; otherwise, you'll die.
I like to hang out with my friends, go to the theatre, watch DVDs, read, play with my niece.
I've never been a social bunny. I thrive on work.
Most of my cousins are boys, so I'm used to being around boys.
Working on new projects gives you the opportunity to learn and absorb new things.
I've always loved the guitar. You see Jimi Hendrix playing the guitar with his teeth, and OK, you know you're never going to be able to do that, but I always wanted to play an instrument of some sort.
When I left EastEnders, I could have earned an absolute fortune from sexy calendars, shoots for lads' mags, fitness videos and reality shows. But I always turned them down.
All that celebrity stuff isn't me. It's just not acting.
For me, once I've worked on something and it's finished, it's like an ex-boyfriend: you don't go back to them.
I adore water, so it would be a real adventure to visit the Amazon before they chop down all the trees.
I love doing action; I love doing martial arts. There's almost something balletic about it.
I was bullied. I was a bit of a geek. Good-looking guys were off-limits. I didn't start dating until I was 18.
If I am not working, I won't wear makeup and I will wear flats.
When you fight on set, you try to not hurt anybody.
I was shy and really into my school work and my drama. Then I joined 'EastEnders' at 16, and it was work, work, work. You become very isolated. I rarely went out and so didn't get to meet anyone.
