What I’m not sure about is if our lives have been so different from the lives of the people we save. We all complete. Maybe none of us really understand what we’ve lived through, or feel we’ve had enough time.

"I have till the rain stops."
"I don’t wear a bikini on the beach. I walk around my house in pyjamas. I haven’t seen myself naked in the mirror for probably a decade. I’m very prudish."

I think I’m more settled and more secure than I’ve probably ever been, and more confident and excited about the work choices that I make, so I feel my job isn’t to be a dancing monkey and entertain people on television, it’s to promote a piece of work I’m proud of. So I can’t really fail if I stick to honestly representing my work and trying to avoid talking very much about myself.
