Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I did become quite well known from Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994), and it helped hugely. I wasn't as famous as Hugh Grant, but I certainly began to work. I couldn't complain. It got me jobs in the theatre. I went for endless auditions for tiny parts in obscure plays and never got one job, until I was in "Four Weddings". See more »

Trivia:

She's twice a descendant of Mary Boleyn. See more »
