As we count down to the last three episodes,
it's getting harder
and harder to read the lines, do the scenes,
without one of us breaking down in tears.
And I have to admit, I'm a pretty emotional
person and I'm probably taking this harder
than the others. This has been my family
for ten years and now suddenly I'm wondering
is going to be like without that closeness.

because I've been in so many and I just
making movies. I like to be fully involved
in each movie I do whether I'm starring
in it or producing it. I look at the rushes
every day and discuss the film with the
director, throwing in advice if needed.
I recognise the importance
of every stage of film making and so many
things can go wrong.
I try to create
an environment where the least mistakes
can happen. I see them coming up because
I've been there, so now it's easier to find
solutions and rectify problems.

off with really dark hair. Then I changed
it to blonde.
Then I had this weird,

I mean I recorded practically every song

I was running myself
down, literally running from set in between
