  • I was born in Oxford and spent a good amount of my time in Portugal too. Then I moved back to London and that is where I stay now. My father is an actor himself while my uncle Richard Harris was a big actor in Hollywood too. In my mind I always wanted to act, though I was very private about this decision of mine. It was in the year 2002 when I started working full time as an actor. I got myself a private coach from a drama school who taught me a lot about acting. Then I started doing some independent films. [from an Interview by Joginder Tuteja in IndiaGLitz about Dil Jo Bhi Kahey 2005]

    • I was always really interested in that period of time ... so I knew of Jane Seymour, and luckily for me, she's the most beloved queen. She was a very amiable, good queen, a peacemaker... . And of course, she's far less obvious than someone like Anne Boleyn. I think there's an intelligence behind her lack of obviousness. In a way, she has more power that way, and if she had survived [giving] birth, she would have gone to become quite an incredible queen. [On the historical Jane Seymour]
    • To me, it came across as someone who was very composed, very secure... . She was Henry's rock, and she brought a lot of confidence back into the court. I wanted to make it clear that she's not a stupid woman, that she's not weak. She tests her boundaries, she pushes the envelope as much as she can, but you have to put her back in her place. In a way, it's almost protective of Henry, in that he stops her in a situation that may be not so beneficial for her, and oversteps her line.[On her performance on Jane Seymour]
    • “Jonathan is wonderful,He has incredible energy and life — on camera and off. It’s quite funny, because on the weekends (the cast is out together) and then on Monday … you’re sitting outside having a tea break, and you’re in these silly costumes."
    • “if she [Jane Seymour] had survived (giving) birth, she would have gone on to become quite an incredible queen. She really had Henry’s trust. And that’s interesting in a time where his word is law.”

    • She speaks Portuguese, French, Spanish & Armenian
    • Her uncle was Richard Harris making her related by marriage to Emilia Fox (Richard Harris' ex daughter-in-law and coincidently Tamzin Merchant's boyfriend Freddie Fox's sister ) who played Jane Seymour in Ray Winstone's Henry VIII.
