  • I've been really lucky in the work that I have done so far, to work with good female actors in lead roles. Lisa McCune in Blood Brothers (2011) and Claudia Karvan in Spirited (2010) and then Susie Porter in Sisters of War (2010). They've been working, and they've got good lives around them as well.
  • I always wanted to do some sort of action film - even a superhero movie - and when Lucy (2014) came out, I was like, 'That's what I want to do.'
  • I like a bit quirky, a bit strange, but then at the same time, I love putting a dress on... and a pair of high heels. It's like a costume.
  • We have a lot of American TV in Australia. I grew up watching Seinfeld (1989), The Simpsons (1989) and those prime time TV shows over the years that feature grown-ups and high school kids. We had a saturation of American voices.

  • There are 365 days in the year, and as a working actor, you might only work 17 of them. You might only need to do two ads and you can afford to live for the year, but it doesn't make for a very satisfactory or fulfilling life. The point isn't to not work - it's to work.
  • What I've found I really like about sci-fi is it can look at philosophical questions about humanity but in a different context. It can really make you think. That's what Doctor Who (1963) does, even if it's a bit silly some other times.
  • I've had something sort of like angel cards where you pull out an angel card that turns out, like, grandmother was watching over me.

  • I was always like, 'No, I don't like sci-fi,' and then I started watching it and thought, I didn't know that's what it was. I think I'd somehow got it confused with action and space-travel action - that sci-fi could only be like 'Star Wars.'
  • I really like photography, and I'd like to do more of that kind of thing. If I had to choose a different job within the industry and do it well, I would love to do cinematography.
  • If you can make it as a children's party fairy, you can make it anywhere.
