Quote

1
[on The Suspicions of Mr Whicher: The Murder in Angel Lane (2013)] I had already agreed to do this before I’d even read the script, because Paddy [Paddy Considine] was in it. It was weird acting with him because, on Tyrannosaur (2011), he was the best director in the world. On this, when the director gave me notes, I’d keep checking Paddy’s eyes to see if everything was all right, and he’d have to tell me, “I’m not the director!”

Fact

1
Considers working on Confetti (2006) as a mistake and the worst acting experience she had out of all the projects she has worked on.

2
Convinced director Susanne Bier to hire her for the role of Angela Burr on The Night Manager (2016) despite the fact she was heavily pregnant with her 3rd child by making reference to how well Frances McDormand’s pregnant character Marge Gunderson worked on the movie Fargo (1996).

3
Was 8 months pregnant with her daughter when she completed filming The Night Manager (2016).

4
Returned to work 9 months after giving birth to her daughter to begin filming the final series of Broadchurch (2013).

5
Has 3 children with her husband Ed Sinclair: 2 sons, Hal Joseph Sinclair (b. August 2005) and Finn Sinclair (b. August 2007), and one daughter (b. August 2015).

6
Has starred in four films with Paddy Considine and appeared in his first two directorial efforts.

7
She asked for her character on Peep Show (2003) to be characterized as less likable, after convincing the writers that her behavior and treatment of David Mitchell’s character had been poor.

8
Met future husband, Ed Sinclair, whilst at Cambridge University.
