I’m a strong, independent woman.

I’m a lion. I’m not tough, but I am strong. I’m definitely not a wallflower.

My older sisters and brother are all amazing beings and inspiring people. They are my best friends and have guided and taught me consistently throughout my life.

I’m not really one of those people who’s always out. I like being at home.

I’ll go out with my friends or if there’s something really amazing I’ve been invited to, but I won’t do that all the time because that’s not who I am.

I have always loved creating and entertaining. It started with music, singing. I grew up in a household filled with music – not pop but old-school stuff, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong.

Dancing freely to Fleetwood Mac always makes me happy.

I think as you get older, you find out more and more about yourself and what you like and what you don’t like.

If I ever feel like, ‘Oh, my life!’ or get upset by silly things like a photographer, or if someone has written something nasty that’s upset me, I just think, ‘Worse things happen at sea.’

Cressida Bonas

I just love being in the arts.

I love that theatre can be political. You can go watch a play; it sends out messages, and you can go away thinking differently to the way you thought about it before.
