Seeing the family is a very important part of my weekend.
I've struggled so hard to reign in my temper because it actually terrifies me.
I feel I'd like to share my luck and my life. Being in love is the best thing in the world.
I was brought up in Scotland and have always been a country person, although the town means a great deal to me, too.
Acting and writing go together. Actors write because they love words and becoming other people - we love to escape into other characters.
Men find it difficult because I've got so much energy and hardly sleep at night, only four or five hours. I wake up in the early hours and potter around.
The things that make me very angry are injustice and bullying. If I see someone bullying a woman or child in the street, or kicking a dog, I go completely mad.
Someone had told me about a house in Wandsworth, southwest London - 21 Blenkarne Road - with an incredible garden, so I went and had a look. I walked in and just said, 'I want it.'
A relationship is lovely if you're happy, comfortable in it and you really like the person. I can think of nothing better. But there's nothing worse than having a relationship in which you feel no interest.
