I know the pressures of being the daughter of a great actress. But it`s inspiring. You learn so much that other people don`t get to learn until later on. My father being a director, I learnt a real work ethic.
I knew that for this movie to work it had to be very hot and very real, and it wasn`t going to be a case of doing it Hollywood all covered with a nice little sheet.
The degree that these scenes went to... there was a couple of days I was upset... I`d have to hurry back to the girls in the makeup trailer and have a bit of a cry because it messes with your head.
If I was absolutely set on something, I don`t think he would shake me. But I don`t think it would occur to that degree, as we`re on the same page.
A film is a director`s vision... there is, however, much input an actor or actress can have.
This profession is very tough and not many people make it, and even if you do, then you can still get slapped in the face constantly.
As I grew up in that world and saw how much it affected her world and how much it affected our childhood, it made me very aware of politics. Of course, I have my own private feelings and thoughts, but I don`t care to share them.
I`ve worked with Bob Hoskins three times. We all talk the same language in a way. We just had a laugh and tried to keep things light.
I`ve played comedy before but not that much. I mostly do get drawn to darker material.
What`s in the movie compared to what we shot is the tip of the iceberg.
I`m not the kind of actress that goes home with the character. I mean, you`re thinking about the work or the next day`s scenes, but not staying in character. But as a film goes on, you become more and more fragile, emotionally. And physically too, actually.
It`s so difficult to get a film financed and I`m not a huge name. I`m not Nicole Kidman. The chances of this coming my way were very slim.
