The Independent Culture


I came out of 'Slumdog Millionaire' uplifted. 'Kramer vs Kramer' is my favourite film ever.


I love crime dramas like 'Inspector Morse'. I've recorded the 'Red Riding' trilogy. I have an interest in 'Lewis', the 'Morse' spin-off, starring my cousin Laurence Fox. I'm a fan of the American series 'The Wire', 'Mad Men' and 'The Sopranos'.


Classical music is my longest love, especially anything with a cello. I played it as a girl. Elgar's Cello Concerto is a favourite piece.


I loved 'The Memory Keeper's Daughter' by Kim Edwards about a father who decides to give his Down's child away. I'm about to read Josephine Hart's 'The Truth About Love'.


My mum Joanna David is in Alan Ayckbourn's 'Woman In Mind' in the West End, about a woman who has a nervous breakdown. She has a real and a fantasy family. My mum plays her real sister-in-law. I saw 'Sympatico' at the Red Lion Pub; I like that intimate theatre experience.
