Quotes

#Quote
1I try to put myself into whatever character I play.
2At home I wear my own clothes, no makeup and don't do anything exciting with my hair. I get to borrow pretty dresses for the red carpet, and have experts do my hair and makeup.
3Because I had grown up with Jane Austen novels and period dramas, I was very familiar with that period and that world.
4It's not often that you get a chance in one role to do the glamour bit and then strip off all the makeup and reveal the real person beneath the facade. Usually, it's either a glamorous role or a raw, emotional role.
5For me, it was all about working with an inspirational filmmaker.
6I'm interested in playing lots of different complex women.
7From the age of four, I loved ballet and tap. I was in the school band, the choir, and all my school plays.
8For me, after emotionally intense roles, I'd need to take a step back because then there's the promoting of the film which is another job in itself.
9I enjoy classics, but classics are classics for a reason.
10It is important to be conscious of the message that you're putting out there. It takes a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get a movie to the screen. I do feel a certain element of responsibility to say something worth saying with it, as well as entertainment.
11Don't worry about society's conditioning and the labels that are put on you by external forces. Hold onto your true self.
12I try not to define myself. Other people are going to do that for you anyway.
13But when you become a slave to a public persona and don't feel comfortable without it, it becomes a shield and it shouldn't come at the expense of your self-worth.
14Different fragrances promote different emotions, and I find that fragrance gets me in the frame of mind for that person.
15Because of my job, my hair gets played with a lot on set, so I try to give it little bit of breathing space when I'm not working.
16I think there are parts of myself in every character I play.
17I was always the one leading the way in terms of wanting to do acting, singing and dancing.
18As an actress, I'm an emotional person.
19I was lucky that my mother had a very well-adjusted perspective of the world, and never pressured me to do anything I didn't want to do.
20I like being free to take on any project that inspires me and to trust that the work will speak for itself.
21[on cooking] don't really have one dish. I'm a very improvisational cook. I sort of like to make things up as I go along. I'm quite creative in the kitchen.
22I think, irrespective of your race, everybody has moments in life where they don't fit in, or where they try to puzzle through who they really are or to find the courage of their convictions.
23I always get a little bit scared reading reviews.
24As a biracial girl growing up in England, I'd never really seen any historical characters who looked like me depicted on film before that weren't being brutalized or playing slaves.
25I try not to limit myself. The actors that inspire me are the comedians and the people able to shape-shift into different roles and into different media. That ensures your longevity as an artist and prevents you from getting bored with yourself and, hopefully, prevents people from getting bored with you.
