"I would hate to be accused of having got through life just by luck – I think you do create your own destiny. My mum and Dad believe in fate. I see coincidences but not a predestined pattern. If it’s just about fate, then you become complacent and expect things to come your way. I like being challenged. Even when you’re doing really intense, dramatic scenes that take so much out of you it’s still really fun and energizing. Acting makes you feel so alive."
