I couldn't talk as a kid because I stammered all the time, so I would just watch. I'm fascinated by human behavior. People surprise me all the time. And I love being able to morph into different characters.
(On Susan Sarandon) "She's just a force of nature. Amazing to work with. We just had such a laugh. And, she's frighteningly smart".
(On her manipulative character in My Summer of Love (2004)) "Whether they like to admit it or not, everyone's got a bit of "Tamsin" in them".
