Perry: I had a cousin who was an actress. I used to be really cheeky and her mum said maybe I could do it, as I had the front.
Perry: I never set out to be an actor, I wanted to be a footballer.
Perry: My mum phoned me up saying there was something in New Woman magazine with 100 sexiest men and I was in the fifty unlikeliest.
