The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - REAL LIFE -

1 When I was lit­tle, I wanted to be a gym­nast. I was quite good at it but – be­cause I’m from a fam­ily of gi­ants – I got far too tall. Then I wanted to be a ten­nis player, then a teacher... then act­ing won out in the end. 2 Now I find gyms claus­tro­pho­bic. They make me mis­er­able, so if I need some ex­er­cise I’ll go for a walk. That’s some­thing you can do any­where, with no one sweat­ing on the tread­mill be­side you! 3 I’ve al­ways been a city girl but a few years ago, I thought it’d be lovely to have some­where I could watch flow­ers grow so I bought a place in the coun­try. It’s very spe­cial and I’m think­ing of liv­ing there when I re­tire. 4 I was brought up with­out re­li­gion, but I be­lieve that any­thing that teaches peo­ple com­pas­sion is a good thing. But cults scare me and when I hear some­one say, ‘My way of re­li­gion is the only way’ I get alarmed. 5 Vase­line is my go-to prod­uct and I never travel with­out a lit­tle pot. But once, when I was fly­ing af­ter a bomb scare, we were told we couldn’t carry make-up on the plane and they took it away. I was hor­ri­fied!
