She's a city girl, but actress Beth Cooke loves to be by the sea, as she tells Emma Blain
Cooking: Richard Corrigan or ready made?
I make food myself.
Wardrobe: Penneys or Prada?
Penneys, but most of my wardrobe is vintage.
Fashion: victim or setter?
I'm not a victim, but I don't expect anyone else to follow my style either.
Shopping: twice a season or twice a week?
I tend to pick up pieces as I go along.
Holidays: Discover Ireland or discover the world?
I've seen quite a lot of Ireland; I go over a lot. I'm just back from Skibbereen -- I spent ten days there over New Year.
Drink: Guinness or Grey Goose?
I would have wine, or maybe cocktails, as my drink of choice.
Friends: quality or quantity?
I only have about ten friends who are 'real' friends -- people I would phone if I was in trouble.
Weekends: down the local or cruising Krystle?
Down the local; I definitely don't go to posh nightclubs.
Beauty regime: one minute or one hour?
One minute, but that's because I have a tendency to be late.
Money: rainy day or live for today?
I wish I saved, but I don't.
Commute: public transport or pay the meter?
Property: smell the sea or see the smog?
I find the sea calming. In a perfect world I would have both.
Pets: dog devotee or cat crusader?
Health: alternative or aspirin?
I don't know enough about alternative medicine to say I'd choose that. So, at the moment I'd probably go for aspirin.
Location: Northside Notable or Southside Star?
I'm from London, so I'm neither but I'd say Northside because it's more 'down'.
Technology: techno savvy or technophobe?
Technophobe. I have a Facebook account but I don't spend long on it.
Reading: chick-lit or not in a fit?
At the moment I'm reading Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe.
On your iPod: Beyoncé or Bach?
I actually do have both on my iPod.
TV: reality TV drama or real TV drama?
I was into The X Factor last year, but I've given up on it now. Of course, I like drama, but there's not a lot of it on.
