"Every week we’d drive down and get cheap tickets for these incredible shows, so all my idols when I was teenager, weirdly, were theatre actors. Before that, I remember watching films and I think that’s probably when I realised that there was this thing called ‘an actor’, but seeing Michael Gambon, Mark Rylance and people like that give astonishing performances when I was fourteen – they were the people that I remember seeing and going: ‘Wow, what is that that they’re doing? It’s so powerful.’"
