It’s great to have a place of my own, but I still see my family often as we are very close. My parents are really supportive and come and watch everything I do.   I have just bought myself a wonderful oil painting by Richard Whadcock. It’s my present to myself after filming and it’s my first proper painting. I’d like to buy one a year because it would be nice to look back and associate a painting with a time in my life.   I enjoy horse riding, tennis, yoga and running – it helps to clear my head and I can do bits of yoga in between filming.   You only have to turn on the telly to see what has happened in the aftermath of Iraq or any of the countries that have been at war over the last few years to see the devastation that people face.

The sad thing is that war goes on.
