I'm an actor. That's what I'm gifted at. It's what makes me breathe.

It's fantastic to strive towards a nice life where you eat nice organic food and your children go to a nice school and you can afford nice clothes and nice perfume and the hypoallergenic make-up. But there's never a day goes by, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, that I don't think about where I'm from.

Most of my life, I've been on a film set. There isn't anything to learn, not learn, unlearn. It's just in me.

I think once you're a mother to one, you're a mother to them all.

I want to prove that you don't have to come from Oxford University or Rada - and you don't have to have parents that support you - to succeed.

I think there's a very fine line between the type of performing that some actors do, and being in a state in your mind where you actually believe what's going on. If we weren't actors, what would we do with that ability? Would we not be slightly insane? Mentally ill? I don't know.

I'll never get a part in a huge action blockbuster. Samantha Morto

I thrive on constant stimulation artistically, whether it's listening to music, seeing art, or whatever. I try to inspire myself because the urban world and politics are quite draining.

Everyone wants to look their best, everyone has dreams of wanting to look like something else. But we are who we are.
