I hate it if my husband

I'm quite a bossy lady. But producing

It makes a lot of people

That was quite overwhelming. Myself and

It was f***ing crazy.
I didn't start acting
until I was 20. I wanted to be a musician.
I've been playing in bands for years and
years and years. It was obviously the performance
in me. I loved
as a teenager, always loved, loved films,
but I never thought I'd be involved, which
