The 5-minute Interview: Hattie Morahan, Actor
'Plastic bags are out of control'
Friday 11 January 2008
Morahan, 29, made her television debut in the BBC adaptation of 'The Peacock Spring'. She can be seen alongside Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman in the film 'The Golden Compass', and in the BBC1 adaptation of 'Sense & Sensibility', which concludes this Sunday at 9pm
If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...
Going to my friend's shop to borrow an outfit.
A phrase I use far too often is...
I wish people would take more notice of...
The plastic carrier bag plague, which is out of control.
The most surprising thing that happened to me was...
Co-hosting with an MTV presenter at the Swiss Textiles Award (a ceremony for up-and-coming designers). It was very surreal. I even got to interview Tommy Hilfiger.
A common misperception of me is...
That I'm very together, when in fact life is pretty chaotic.
I am not a politician but...
I would probably do something about the recent Arts Council funding cuts.
I'm good at...
I'm very bad at...
Leaving the house on time and remembering to water the plants.
The best age to be is...
I will take any age that you don't need someone to help you get in and out the bath.
In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:
Never fly in a helicopter without doors. My dad told me that. But more seriously: have no regrets.
