I`d hate to lose the character actress part of me, because, by God, the parts are much more interesting. As a black actress all I was offered in British film was the best friend role, whereas in TV I was offered a whole spectrum of parts. I`d love to be able to follow that through into my newly-formed film career which I didn`t expect to get at 36!

 

But I`m pretty secure about who I am. Anything that`s truthful I`m not ashamed of.
