My favorite part of any project is the preparation. It's where you get to meet the people, the experts.
In terms of publicity and interviews, well, it's really hard in this modern world to keep a sense of mystery.
You need mystery. You actually do. I think that's what foreign women, French women in particular, are good at. There's still a sense that you need to keep some of the unknown because that's where the soul resides, or something.
As an actor, the first thing you learn in drama school is you never judge.
I am sick of living out of a suitcase.
I can't complain about the roles that have come my way.
I do want to have holidays and see my family and friends.
