I'm one of the Bond girls in Quantum of Solace, so I watched Daniel Craig in Enduring Love on DVD. Lots of the previous Bond girls have been quite negative about being a Bond girl – but I am thrilled to be in it! I saw The Other Boleyn Girl because my friend Eddie Redmayne, who also stars with me in the BBC drama Tess of the d'Urbervilles that we are filming right now in Bath, is in it. As filming Tess is quite depressing, I've been watching comedies to cheer myself up, including Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. I also watched The Shipping News with Julianne Moore as she is my favourite actress. I want to see Shine a Light because I love The Rolling Stones.
