What’s the best job in TV?

I’d love to dress up and play a period character. I’m two years behind everybody else and have only just got into Downton! I’m on series two and I know what’s about to happen but I’m still totally hooked.

What will TV be like in 30 years’ time?

TVs are getting thinner and smaller, and maybe projection will be more common – we could end up being surrounded by a programme and be able to take part, Hunger Games style!

What do you hope will stand the test of time?

Can I say EastEnders? It’s been going 28 years already so I’m sure it will still be on. Janine could be like Pat – as long as I inherit the bar in her living room, I don’t mind staying around!

Who should win the RT Audience Award?

I was completely hooked on Homeland. Damian Lewis and Claire Danes are fantastic. I’ve totally bought into the love story and think he’s turned his back on terrorism… I hope!
