I've always been obsessed with Audrey Hepburn.




Usually when people see me, they see me as more of the soft-spoken one rather than being the witty, smart-tongued character.




I like the idea of shows where I don't know where I'll be at the end of the season.




Because I've done so many hour dramas, people tend to think of you as more of a dramatic actor and don't see you as doing comedy.




People say, 'You look like the girl who used to be on that show 'Angel' - they don't actually think I'm her.




Genre stuff is the most exciting stuff for an actor to play. I get to try new things, do things I would have never got the chance to do.
