"I think I was working a long time before I was able to actually be like, ‘Oh, I’m a professional actress,’ like, to accept that. I don’t know why that was so hard, but it took a long time. I live in an alternate universe sometimes. I see myself so differently than the way the world sees me. I think everybody has a different experience. I’m in my skin so I… I feel really, I have felt, in the past, very vulnerable. And so you always feel like it could go away, so you never want to get too attached to labels. If anything, now I’m not as scared of it going away, y’know? I feel like I’m going to do what I need to do to stay excited about my work."

"Saoirse and I had a real giggle - she’s naturally very witty and wry. She has a rare ability to be able to snap into extreme emotional states very quickly. So we would be laughing and joking before the camera rolls and then, instantly, she would be completely serious. She’s just a dream to act with." - Gemma Arterton
