Andrea: (on what drew her to Being Human): The drama was brilliantly written – I think Toby Whithouse is a fantastic writer. I think, because he's an actor, he writes it how you say it. This one was just a lovely job to have. The other thing that enticed me to it was because I knew that Russell Tovey was doing it. I'm a big fan of his and we're good friends now. I trusted the casting director, so I knew that because she has good taste, it was going to be a great piece. I came to the meeting thinking it was wonderful and left thinking it was even more wonderful.
Andrea: (On her role in The Devil's Whore): When you get the script and it says they all fall over when they see her, you think, 'Do they really? With brown spots on her lower teeth? I don't think so.'
