My breakthrough moment: Vogue Williams

I think I always knew what I wanted to do. I went to a fancy-dress party when I was nine, dressed as a model. I was actually wearing my sister's disgusting confirmation outfit that I thought screamed 'model'. I went to dance classes and acting classes, but I knew TV was where I wanted to be.

I think, to be in this industry, you need to be good at what you do, but you also need a lot of luck and to be willing to work extremely hard, so I was never sure if I'd be one of the lucky ones to make a career of it. I think a big change for me was when I got my first TV show, 'Wild Girls', and saw it doing so well with great reviews - that made my year, last year.

I watched the show a few times before it aired and I liked it, but I didn't know what everyone else would think. During the first episode, I realised that everyone was enjoying it through all of the tweets and the comments on Instagram. The first review came out within an hour of it airing, and that's when I sort of knew it had done very well. I don't take reviews as a level of how well it did, but I take everyone's opinions on board - from social media to reviews - and, all in all, it was a really great response. I actually cried after the first episode because I was so happy. I'd put a lot of work into the series and it was such a great feeling to know everyone loved it.
