Personal Quote:

I've gravitated towards independent cinema because you have to work harder in studio scripts to flesh out characters, particularly female ones. They are not as sharply edged, they tend to be quite watery. They are not renderings of women as I know them. See more »

Trivia:

Auditioned for the role of Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006), but Eva Green was cast instead. See more »
