On her most memorable filming experience:
"Honestly, Alan Arkin [in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee] was one of the best love interests I’ve ever had. He was the most kind, fun and a challenge - because he was clearly very uncomfortable with the fact that I was 19 and he was 72."
On her love for the Spice Girls:
"When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace –when I say custom made it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a union jack dress."
On fulfilling a life long dream in London:
"Someone told me [the paparazzi were swarming] because Victoria Beckham was in the same restaurant. I was like, OK, that makes sense. She’s a friend of mine and I would have said hello but I decided I didn’t want to bother her. Until that person then told me that she was there with I was like, I need to say hello! So, there you have it; I got to hang out with The Spice Girls. It was my lifelong dream. That’s it now. I can quit."
