So wearing a corset certainly changes your state of mind.

It's disturbing because she's such a good actress. She had to draw all these evil pictures as her character, these evil scribbles. So we would just sit around and draw really pretty pictures as sort of an antidote to what we were doing every day.
I don't smoke and I don't drink alcohol.
New York in a way functions as another character within the story, as it does within most of Woody Allen's stories.
I'd definitely rather be rich than famous.
But in this case, he had my cell phone and my phone was ringing and I had just come back from Australia on the plane and I thought it was my mum and it was Woody Allen just checking to see if I wanted to be in his movie.
I mean normally you have your agent call the other agent and all the agents talk and then finally you get a phone call and you hear some misrepresentation of what someone else had to say.
I had a friend, and we always used to pretend to be twins. We had this fantasy about going to Hollywood together. We were about four.
For me, even just being English was a whole sort of experience in as much as I'm Australian.
Yeah I think Pitch Black was edgy, I think that's what worked for our film.
I think there's something very elegant about the way that Christophe is directing horror. And, his inspiration is, you know, coming from a very highbrow kind of level in art. So If you're into horror I would say this is the movie to watch because it's elegant horror.
So I was in America and I thought I'll stick around while I'm here and just see what happens. The next film I did was High Art, so I guess it started with a sort of vague idea but really just a fantasy.
Christophe has a really interesting take on the concept of the video game. And you do have a sense of what it must feel like to be stuck in this chase. Since we've been making the film, we see the vision and the script come alive. It's a very visual piece so when [reading the script] you won't neces
We don't relate to her too much because you don't want the heroic character to not be heroic.
I just don't talk about who I'm going out with, that's it. It's an odd thing to sit around describing yourself to 10 different people every 5 minutes yet it's kind of therapeutic in a way.
Well, obviously I was excited by the idea that Woody Allen was going to direct it. But at the same time, the script itself and the character was really interesting.
To be honest, it's easier for me to speak with an American accent. Radha Mitchel
After that, I was offered lots of lesbian roles, but I didn't want them because I'd already played the best there was.
This city can be kind of brutal, so you see your dreams from every different angle, but ultimately it's about acting and if you enjoy acting, you will always enjoy acting.

Silent Hill is the scariest thing I've been in since a bed with Ally Sheedy.
I guess when I first started speaking with an American accent, there's a tendency to create a caricature of the accent because you just exaggerate the pieces that stand out to you.
As much as most of the actors were kind of curious to know what their character meant in relation to the script and to the plot, they really were quite happy to be part of the adventure of not knowing.
To be honest, it's easier for me to speak with an American accent.
I'm not a very good player, to be honest. I've tried to play the game and especially to get familiar with the characters better. I mean, it's really an amazing game, having just a limited sort of knowledge of it that I have.
I think part of that is to create an environment where it's like real life, where you don't really know what's going to happen to you in a certain scene.
But I'm also a vegetarian so there's another factor I guess.
There's something really nice about having a group of people that you're committed to, that you work with and that there's a future in it. Film is like a party, and then it's over, whereas this hopefully feels like a family.
I do, too, most recently while I was singing karaoke in some weird bar. Radha Mitchel
