Tell us a little bit about the play and the role you're taking.

Dumbest of all blondes, 1960's bombshell Pauline. Fierce.

What's it like going into a show that's been so incredibly successful - exciting, pressurised, nerve-
wracking, a challenge?

It is great, it's the kind of show that mum and dad will come to without being dragged.

What would be your perfect job?

To play Walter White in Breaking Bad.

When were you happiest?

I should probably say my wedding day. I was dressed up as a tiger for some of it!

What is your greatest fear?


What is your earliest memory?

Pushing my brother into a koi carp fish pond.

Which living person do you most admire, and why?

My husband.

Where would you like to live?

On a houseboat, on the Thames. Chenies Walk ideally.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

I was really pissed at the weekend, I'm really sorry, I didn't mean it.

Cat or dog?

Don't care too much but probably a dog.

To whom would you most like to say sorry, if anyone?

Depends who I insulted at the weekend.

Who is your best friend in theatre?

My false eyelashes.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?

To the weekend. To put it right.

Tell us a secret.

A secret's not a secret if you tell.

Kellie stars in One Man Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal Haymarket
