Some Facts
Although she played Lily James's mother in Cinderella (2015), she is only seven years her senior in real life.
As a teenager, she went on anti-vivisection and Free the Dolphins marches.
At age 9, she walked over hot coals at a 'Power Into Action’ workshop that she attended with her mother.
At age 8, she became a committed vegetarian after seeing Loyd Grossman put a live lobster into boiling water.
Studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (2002-2005).
Personal Quotes
I think it will be a balance of creative and commercial choices, going forward. People say critical acclaim and box office success don't go hand in hand and that may be true but I don't really think I'd live much on the salary of a full-time theatre actor. I mean, I could, but I really like going out to dinner...

The scary thing is what that will do to a generation of young people [in Russia] who are having these thoughts and feelings towards members of their own sex but they're given no reference point that this is OK. This is just part of who they are and I think you'll get a lost generation of children growing up feeling that their country is telling them that this fundamental aspect of who they are is wrong. It's incredibly troubling because it's happening, not just in Russia, but in countries like Georgia and Cameroon and the statistics in this country of homophobic attacks is frightening.

[on her character in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)] Peggy was in a position where if she was a damsel in distress, she wouldn't be of that position. And when she says, "I know what it's like to have a few doors slammed in my face," I think because she's this attractive woman who's beautifully made up, she had to fight a little bit harder to get where she is to prove that she's capable. And I think that's great because there's a kindred spirit between her and Steve, there's an equality about them and I love that.

We heard about the protest in Whitehall in support of Russian gay rights and we went along and it was very moving and we felt it was very positive.

My first job was a Greek tragedy, and ever since, one job just seemed to roll onto the next. I've been terribly lucky.
