I don't like going for more than a year without doing theatre. I don't mind falling flat on my face so long as I feel I'm open to the possibility of something extraordinary happening.
But I'm pretty secure about who I am. Anything that's truthful I'm not ashamed of.
When I do things that aren't very good, I'm worse as an actor. I don't know what I pick up - but it's something not very nice.
I'd hate to lose the character actress part of me, because, by God, the parts are much more interesting. As a black actress, all I was offered in British film was the best friend role, whereas in television, I was offered a whole spectrum of parts. I'd love to be able to follow that through into my newly-formed film career which I didn't expect to get at 36!.
Without hammering you over the head with it, the movie gets you to ask questions. That's what good movies do.
