Merlin
“I want to have a little toy version of Morgana. I can then show it to my grandchildren one day. So I can say I used to have a waist.” – BBC, 2008

“I always think of Morgana as the ticking time bomb of the show.” – CTV, 2009

“I was terrified. I didn’t know anything. I was learning on the job and making mistakes. But shooting Merlin has been like four years of drama school, and I think I can take anything that is thrown at me now.” – Irish Times, 2009

“I was so scared. I was like, ‘They’re going to re-cast me, they’re going to re-cast me. I’ve got to do a good job’ and I walk in and Giles from Buffy is there.

I was just like ‘Oh my God, oh my God.’” – CTV, 2009

“My favorite scenes are always the scenes I do with Colin.” – SciFiChick, 2009

“Every now and again I’m standing in a corridor asking myself ‘Is this real?’ If you had told me that every day I get into this dress and watch sword fighting and dragons, I’d have thought you were mad.” – BBC, 2008

“One thing I’ve always thought about Morgana is that she’s sort of a modern mind in a period body. She’s not your usual warm princess, which is what drew me to her in the first place.” – SciFiChick, 2009

“I have to keep my hair long for my role in Merlin, but because I know I can’t cut it, all I want to do is shave it off!” – Instyle, 2008

“You know I’m stressed when the house fills up with cakes: carrot cakes, cupcakes.” – Irish Times, 2009

Acting
“It’s like running away to join the circus, everyone wants to do it when they’re young but then you grow up and get a proper job. But somebody’s got to do it or you wouldn’t have the circus.” – Arena, 2008

“I just want to do good work. If it’s shot in Hungary, if it’s shot in Russia, if it’s shot in America, if it’s shot in England, you just want to do something you can stand up and say I’m proud of it.” – Fresh Online, 2008

[On wanting a career like Kate Winslet’s] “She makes blockbusters; she makes weird movies; she still has a family and she seems really grounded.” – Tribune Magazine, 2008

Childhood

“I was a strange child. I was the kid with funny hair listening to dodgy music […] I’d come in with my hoodie and skate-shoes, with purple hair under the hood.

I was that kind of kid, listening to Green Day and the Deftones and all that kind of thing.” – Tribune Magazine, 2008

“The first thing I ever wanted to be was a backup singer for Guns ‘n’ Roses.” – Tribune Magazine, December 2008
