Diet Coke is the only way I get through filming because I get so tired.

For exams, I swotted so hard because I couldn’t bear the thought of not coming first.
I naturally have a really small waist.
I’m a real hoarder.
I want to be Ursula in ‘The Little Mermaid.’
I really have been lucky because I’ve always had a very healthy attitude to my body.
I’m dying to do a tiny indie and play something totally naturalistic without any sort of constraints on me. Something where I can shock everyone.
I love singing so much. As a kid, that was what I wanted to do.
I played Nina in ‘The Seagull,’ and I remember thinking it’s incredible to see all the actresses in the past that’ve played her. It’s quite strengthening. You feel a part of the family of actresses going through and giving something of themselves to the role.
Sadly, I’ve never met Princess Kate.
I find cardio hard.
I think our sense as actors of what we’ve just done – whether or not it be in an audition – is usually really not connected to any truth. I’m always asking for more takes and more goes. I think I just need to shut up and listen.
There are other things I want to focus on rather than staying in shape.
Drama school was a lifeline for me, it saved me. I found it very nurturing – I just clung on.
The Twenties outfits are all about freedom and loose, flowing lines, whereas in ‘Cinderella,’ I had to wear corsets and big huge skirts.
Boarding school in Tring was a bit of a bubble that burst when I went to Hackney to go to drama school.
I really want to play interesting roles, but you want to work, so it’s a balancing game.
There’s nothing wrong with falling in love and sharing your life with someone.
I don’t have an exact moment when I decided I wanted to be an actress – it kind of was just really a part of my growing up.
To be honest, when I was growing up – I think it’s because of Kate Winslet and ‘Titanic’ – I always wanted to do period.
The world of the flapper – live free, wild and young – that energy is intoxicating. It’s nice to inject that into the more controlled ‘Downton’ way of living.
I think Keira Knightley is amazing, and I’ve heard also that she is one of the coolest, most down-to-earth, brilliant girls, and I really look up to her in that respect. She’s got it all, really, and I think she’s made interesting, bold choices in her work.
The famous pilot season literally sends shivers down my spine.
I’m such a geek now with princesses. It’s pathetic.
The first Disney movie I saw I think was ‘Snow White.’ I loved all the Disney princess movies.
At drama school, we were taught to write down your dreams and carry them around in your wallet with you, and they’ll come true, but I didn’t do that.
I want to do more theater, which allows you to take bigger risks and experiment.
As an actor, you get a bit itchy to do something entirely different.
I think it’s probably best to work out in the morning to get it out of the way. My ultimate top tip is to drag yourself, even if you have to roll yourself out of your bed and in to a sit-up – it’s really not that bad once you start.
When people feel good, they look good.
