Lisa: It was incredibly physical and demanding, being at sea every day for six weeks, jumping on and off speedboats
Lisa: (on her career choices) I think I make brave choices and tackle stuff other people wouldn't. I ideally want to make good drama and I look at what Claudia Karvan's done and that's definitely a career I'd love to follow.
