The IFTA winning actress, who has two children Sadie (two) and Billy (11 months) with husband Brian O'Driscoll, said sometimes her house can be too chaotic to write or learn lines.

"I can't do it," she told Star Chic magazine. "Maybe I should get an office built in the garden. For me, there's too much procrastination ebfore I actually do anything, so if there's noise or if there's anything to distract me, I'm a waste of space.

"I've parked down roads and hidden in my car trying to learn lines. I do like to write at night, so if the children are asleep then that's great, but if it's during the day, I have to get out."

Huberman, who recently finished her first screenplay Bolt, a film adaptation of her second novel I Wished For You, said she is back to auditions and recently landed a part of upcoming ITV drama, Houdini and Doyle about  the friendship of Harry Houdini and Arthur Conan Doyle.

She also said she that she'd be open to collaborating with friend and fellow writer Dawn O'Porter, saying: "You know, we did talk about that. I would be really open for that because it can be lonely writing on your own."
