day four: a female character you relate to [1/2]"there are times when i can’t stop speaking, when a million words leave my mouth in a matter of seconds… a million words that mean nothing… but when i want to find some words that mean everything, i just can’t speak. like: i miss you. like: i love you. like: my world is falling apart and i need you by my side."
When I look around, I see that everyone’s the protagonist of their own story. And the thing about stories is that not all of them have a happy ending. But some do.
"Instead of saying “You’re fat and you’re ugly.” I’m going to say, “You are the person who helped your mum out, who saved your best mate, who lives with an illness, but keeps on going.”
“Everyone just flies out and throws themselves around out in Hollywood. I’d rather keep on learning. Every job I do, I’m still learning. Whether it’s a short film that you do for free on a Saturday morning, or it’s The Village in Derbyshire, you’re learning and I just want to have the right scripts with the right directors, whether it’s film or drama it doesn’t really bother me at the moment. When you do Mad Fat Diary or The Village, you always learn about the particular time period and that’s always nice for an actor. I struggled at school ,so I’ve certainly been making up for it!”
