The award-winning actress, who plays a woman facing terminal illness in the upcoming BBC drama A Short Stay in Switzerland, admitted that after a hard day’s filming, she likes nothing more than to go home and watch soaps on TV.
She told whatsontv.co.uk: “My favourite is Coronation Street. I’m a bit of a soap fiend… Corrie, EastEnders. And I like The Bill, it’s marvellous. It’s really well made considering the time they have to make it.”
She added: “There’s some amazing acting in soaps – sometimes better than some of the Oscars stuff!”
A Short Stay in Switzerland is on Sunday, January 25 at 9pm on BBC1.
