LAST TIME I WAS INJURED
I dropped a knife on my foot. I’m not accident-prone really, but I was cutting something and sort of lost control, and it went through my big toe. There was a lot of blood and I nearly fainted, but it’s totally fine now.
LAST TIME I SAID ‘SORRY’
Just now, to my parents’ dog Archie. I had on these slippers, which are really colorful, and he was trying to bite them, and I had to kind of kick him away [laughs]. It’s adorable; he goes absolutely mad when he sees them.
LAST TIME I PLAYED GUITAR
Allen Leech, Elizabeth McGovern and I play when we are working [on the Downton set]. It’s quite funny, us being all in costume and jamming together. We play the usual … R.E.M. We’re not particularly advanced.
LAST TIME I CRIED
My godchildren went to see Taylor Swift in concert and got to meet her. They literally ran toward her and hugged her, and it was amazing. I got big bonus points for that – I’ll remind them when they are teenagers.
LAST TIME I DANCED
At the SAG Awards afterparty. If I’m ever with my sister, we always do this little routine we made up when we were younger. But it’s all from the ’90s. We need to bust out some new moves!
