  • Quotes

    • Tamsin: One problem though with spending so much time working with adults is that I lost my respect for teachers – and so I did get into trouble for being too lippy to them. I just didn't have the same fear as I might have had and they would get pretty angry about that.

    • Tamsin: (On her character in "St. Trinian's") Basically they are sluts but they like to think that there is a real art to seduction. They're into wearing sexy underwear with fluffy bits. I was too lanky to be a seductress at school. I think that's why I got my nickname Bambi. Anyway, I never fancied any of the boys. The school was too small so everyone just seemed like brothers and sisters.

    • Tamsin: (On school) I played truant all the time. I was modeling so I'd go to shoots and call in sick.

    • Tamsin: (On school) I was a real goody-two-shoes. I wasn't very naughty. I never smuggled in vodka or anything. I used to smuggle in tea bags – we weren't allowed them for some weird reason – then we'd have tea parties in the stairwell or in one of the fields. But we weren't exactly going to get into big trouble for being civilised, were we?

    • Tamsin: I actually finished school at 16 and I don't want to go back. And my agent said I shouldn't. At drama school, they like to take you apart and rebuild you but I don't want to change now.
