  • I loved being involved as a washerwoman in The Danish Girl. I had to use a dolly peg just like my grandmother’s, as Eddie Redmayne walked through the backstreets of 'Paris'.

  • I enjoyed filming The Danish Girl at a venue near Canary Wharf in London. My scene was reduced in the final cut, but that is how it is sometimes with cinema.
