What made you decide to try your hand at the music industry?
I got approached by Universal to make an album, and I just thought 'okay, it's not really something I've ever wanted to do' - but it's Universal, so I was like, 'sure why not!' I think you've got to try these things. It didn't really work out because my heart wasn't really in it, and I was so busy doing Tracy Beaker and Dani's House that there was no time to promote it. I enjoyed making the album, although I don't think it's something I would do again to be honest.
You were an extra in the first Harry Potter film - how did that come about?
Basically my agency had loads of kids on it, and someone was ill - I fitted their costume and had a couple of days off, so I went and was an extra in the background, but that was pretty much it to be honest - I think I was there for about a week!
Have you always wanted to be an actress?
Yes! I've wanted to be an actress since a really stupid age, three of four, and always said to my mum that this is what I want to do. I got my first job when I was six, so I think I was just born to be an actress.
You appeared in 'Tommy' in the West End when you were younger, would you like to get back into musical theatre?
Yeah, definitely. I did a lot of musicals while I was at school and it is something I miss. I get to do it when I'm in panto, but I'd really love to do musicals.
Well there's loads of things I want to do, and lots in the pipeline, but I really, really want to be Doctor Who's next assistant, so hopefully they might contemplate it! That would be amazing.
So would that be your dream role?
Definitely - I don't actually watch the programme, but I like the idea of being in it! Doctor Who is my next mission.
