1Often plays characters who are fun-loving and/or eccentric.
2Impressively muscular arms.
1(On what attracted her to her character in Wah-Wah) I couldn't believe Lady Riva Hardwick could be so ghastly and thought that, (a) it would be fun to play someone so utterly uncompromising and, (b) there must be more to her than meets the eye, and it would be a challenge to find it. I was also so taken up with the story of the film and our Director's enthusiasm and belief, I just wanted to jump on board and fly with him.
2(On how she developed her character in Wah-Wah) I sought out, wherever we went on location, friends of Richard's who had known the rather remarkable, as I daily discovered, Lady Riva that my character was based on. I tried to incorporate as many of her qualities and idiosyncrasies as I could. I also absorbed all the details of precious film footage of the day, that Richard [E. Grant] found for us. The subjects' behavior, and fashion, during social and historic events was a fascinating help.
3On her co-star in Kingdom: We all love Stephen (Fry) and we are a great team. I am very lucky.
4Discussing working with George Lucas: He's very cool, as you'd expect....he asked me to take off my lipstick though. As I was going to be the first female pilot they'd ever used, I thought I'd put on some lipstick, and make an effort.
5When asked about Star Wars: I'm amazed anyone recognized me covered up in that hat and goggles. The casting director had seen me in a Harold Pinter play and asked me to be in Star Wars - how bizarre is that? I think I was originally up for the part of the mother at the beginning of the film but, when I didn't get it, they asked me to be a fighter pilot instead. I can't pretend I was a life-long Star Wars fan but I did think it would be rather cool for my son if his mum was in the film. He was little at the time so, when we went to see it, he went to sleep and missed me, but he got to see it with his school friends later. None of us knew what the story was, though. Because the producers are so worried about leaks, we had no idea how we fitted into the film. It was just terribly exciting to be on the set and part of a phenomenon like Star Wars.
6On Alan Bates: I'd known him for years and absolutely adored him. He really is naughty. Terrible. Or was, God bless him. But then, you see, Dame Judi's got that too. Everybody who's ever been one of my heroes is very naughty. Naughty sense of humor. Naughty sparkle in their eye.
7On Victoria Wood: I first met her through her university friends in Birmingham. I was in the room applauding when she won New Faces and she then rather loyally came to see me in a chorus line in a pantomime. She's been terribly loyal to me and I'm very proud to be working with her at the moment.
8Discussing her character in 'Wah-Wah': A friend of mine came to see a screening and said, 'Ceels, I was longing for you to suddenly become funny. And you didn't'. I said, 'I know, it's quite weird isn't it?' Originally Richard offered me another part but I said, 'yes, but what about this old bag?'
