  • Moving to New Zealand from London at age 15, and taking 20 years to feel like a Kiwi
  • Recalling how the public disliked her and Dominic Bowden when Space began
  • Learning the importance of research after a band interview bombed on Space
  • Having a panic attack when she resigned from Campbell Live to act in The Jacquie Brown Diaries
