I always start from scratch with a character - they're never based on anyone else. You get ideas of what people look like, and I'm a great people watcher. You can draw inspiration from people.
I like to think I'm a listener, and I'm fascinated by observing people - I suppose you just lock that in.
I have nothing against people having work done, it is when I hear tale of girls of 16 queuing up to get bigger breasts, that is when I despair.
I think some people think that being on television makes you a sitting duck, but you have the right to remain private.
It always interests me how obsessed people are about age.
