I really enjoy dressing up. I'm pretty much a girlie girl.— Joanne Froggatt
The most strong Joanne Froggatt quotes that are life-changing and eye-opening
My agent asked if I fancied Robin Hood and I thought: 'Yeah, why not?' I hadn't watched it, to be honest, but I'd seen bits and knew it was really popular Saturday family viewing with heaps of action. I thought it would be great fun. I was up for a good old play-fighting and the scripts were terrifically exciting.
I use mainly products by Dermalogica.
They have specialized formulas to target specific skin needs, which I like. It works well for my sensitive skin.
Fashion does seem to have a 20s comeback every few seasons, and I completely see why. Its a very feminine look: the fabrics and the shapes are very pretty and distinctive.
I like 'X Factor' as much as the next person, but I do get overwhelmed with the amount of reality TV. It's such cheap programming and such a load of rubbish, most of it.
As I get older, my skin shows more of how I am feeling, like a mirror.
If I am stressed, or not getting enough sleep, I see it in my face right away.
The condition of my skin changes often, depending on the season or if I'm traveling a lot.
If you can do something great in 60 seconds, you can do anything, really.
My mum said she remembers me asking her if she'd take me to ballet lessons when I was about two and a half. She said I could barely speak, and yet was asking for ballet lessons.
It's nice to bring the changes with everything you do.
As an actor, that's what you want to do, all the time.

It's very kind of 'Wuthering Heights' where my parents' house is, moors and deserted. It's very wild and mystic.
I've rarely played glamorous roles. I don't mind looking plain on camera.
I was neurotic and weird from an early age.
I love heels! I especially like heels by Nicholas Kirkwood, Jimmy Choo and Moschino.
My skin doesn't look as good when I'm not eating enough fruits and vegetables, so I try to eat plenty.
I have to admit, I go through phases of being good and bad.
When I'm being good, I go to the gym three to four times a week. I do much better in a class with other people. I like aerobics and circuit training.
When I'm filming I live out of a suitcase, so everything is thrown everywhere.
In real life, I'm a bit tidier.
Ill-fitted T-shirts stretched over a gut are my pet hate. And if the colour's faded - ugh.
When something is dramatized it provokes a much more emotive response than just hearing a story on the news.
I always play girls who are quite traumatised, or a plain girl, but I'm happy with that.
I guess the one thing that people don't know about me is, I had my belly button pierced but not anymore.
As an actor, or as a person, I like to do things that are challenging.

In true-life dramas, you have to do so much research.
It's a big responsibility to make sure things are as correct as possible. In 'Robin Hood', you have more artistic license - it's all action, adventure and reaction. This gives everyone a chance to make their characters their own and to make them believable.
You can have a great script, and it can be a great show, but for whatever reason, it just doesn't take the public's interest.
If you're wearing something I like, I will come over and ask where you got it from. I'm not shy!
The fragrance that suits me best is Romance by Ralph Lauren.
It seems to blend into my chemistry, so it is nice and subtle. I don't like to be doused in scent. This one is feminine, fresh and a bit musky.
As an actor, you always want to do the juicy stuff. But, it's important to get the levels right.
