I got offered 'Black Mirror,' and my boyfriend and I were so excited. I used to read Charlie Brooker's column growing up.
I like people who do what they do incredibly well and are active in their non-acting life, too.
There might be the odd person in my family who was an artist down the line, but no one in my immediate family is an actor of any kind.
I've always waitressed between roles. When 'Black Mirror' was on, I was still flipping burgers. Customers would recognise me while asking for extra ketchup, which was pretty embarrassing.

I was inspired to become an actor from theater I'd seen, so I assumed I'd do a lot of theater. But when I left Guidhall, the first thing I did was a short film - I played the main character. And I loved it. I love working on camera. I love the smallness of it and the detail and the routine of it.
