'Well, “Pride” tells the true story of an alliance between Welsh miners and a group called “LGSM” which is Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, a group of very young, gay people at the gay pride march which, as you can imagine, in 1984, was a different pride march than we have, and they sent money down to these… this small Welsh mining village to help them out, and they formed an alliance together that still lasts to this day, and it’s a true story… and we’re all unbelievably proud of it. It premiered at Cannes there and it went down an absolute storm.'

Do I come from an acting family? No, not at all. My older sisters were involved in singing and dancing and acting, so I sort of followed in their footsteps. Then realized I didn’t enjoy singing and dancing very much and that acting was more my bag. I got an agent when I was seven, and they started setting me up for jobs. This film came along [The Heart of Me, 2002], and Kate Rhodes James was the loveliest casting director, and gave me that opportunity to work with these incredible actors. Really it was that film that sparked my desire to make it a career.

spent half an hour explaining this to my sister and she’s still angry and doesn’t get it
