Personal Quote:

Theatre is liberating because it only works if it's truthful, That's what it requires. That's not true of film: the camera does lie. You can be moved by a performance on set, but when you see it on screen, it does nothing. Yet there will be someone you simply didn't notice on set that on screen: bam! See more »

Trivia:

Engaged to actor Damian Lewis in February of 2006. See more »
