Why do people want to kill and maim and pillage? We're all in it together.
It's true as a woman, particularly: the older you get, the parts get thinner on the ground and not quite as interesting, that's for sure.
'Downton Abbey' about upper-class posh people: of course it is.
There is nothing quite like a freshly brewed pot of tea to get you going in the morning.
I think everyone knows someone who's battling with dementia or caring for a relative affected by it. I've been staggered by how commonplace it is.
Because I came from a small town outside Glasgow, nobody from my school had ever gone into the acting profession. It was just something you didn't do. You joined the bank or became a teacher or whatever you did.
