"The thing that really moved me, actually, was the new family that I have in this franchise, the actors I’m surrounded with. You really are only as good as the people you work with and I couldn’t have wished for a more welcoming and talented bunch of people.

When it comes to clothes, working with Martin Freeman has been an education. He’s always incredibly dapper. So learning a bit more about fashion and having people phone me up and say ‘Would you like to wear our clothes?’ has made me more comfortable with it.
