I was going to change my name to Sophie Windsor, but then I decided not to. I prefer to go into the room just as Sophie Winkleman.
Try to exercise gentleness, kindness and humour, and you cannot go far wrong.
I am a big fan of cosy. I get very excited by a roaring fire and even a perfectly made cup of tea. And being married really is the ultimate in cosy, so I couldn't be more content.
With 'Titanic,' you have all the first-class passengers interwoven with wonderful stories about the maids and the engineers, the people downstairs in the galleys.
I always loved being in London and being near my parents.
The London Library in Piccadilly is the best place for a sleep.
I'm not one of those girls who can think, 'Right, I'll put a scarf with that and a little brooch there and maybe a vintage jacket.' I'm so impressed with girls who look terrific in a little thing they picked up at the local charity shop. I just look scruffy when I try to do vintage.
For clothes, I like Anna on Regent's Park Road. Anna Park, who owns it, has an amazing eye for fresh, exciting clothes. I also love Arrogant Cat on Kensington Church Street. Space NK on Duke of York Square for exciting potions. I think I stretch the term 'tester' way beyond its boundaries.
I was cast as the lead in a Warner Bros TV pilot and was immediately told I needed to lose weight. I got a bit weird about food for the first time in my life, and I thought, 'You know, this just isn't the life for me.'
Have fun and play as many word games as possible.
I love doing the radio plays, creating a whole world with just the voice, and I'd love to be back on stage, too, at some point.
18 to 19 is definitely a brilliant age. Equally, 50 or 60 should be good. Everything is done; you can relax a bit.
I self-deprecate. When I first got here two years ago, I didn't realise that in America you can't go into the room and put yourself down.
I tried to go to the gym a while ago and hurt my foot. I thought, 'Well, exercise and I just aren't meant to be.'
When I try to concentrate, I really enjoy writing.
