Producing good stuff can be quite tough, and it involves a lot of frustration, but I always like things to be jolly and happy, and I forget that's actually not the point at the end of the day.
I've played in pipe bands in Scotland, and I've always played guitars and drums and stuff.
I find that the acting's getting easier - with experience, everything is more instinctual.
I want to wear skinny jeans when I'm in my 70s. Why not? Who cares?

I'm fiercely proud to be Scottish.
As a child I was taken to the pantomime or the theatre and I would always, always fall in love with somebody on the stage. And want to have sex with them.
I worked as a waiter when I was 15 and got a chance to appreciate good, simple food. There's nothing better than a boiled egg with toast.
