'Wild Swans' showed me there are Chinese traditions that still affect my life. For example, it's not that women are inferior, exactly, but my dad and my brother are the most important men in my life and I would do anything for them. I feel like I should be the one cooking and looking after them.

I am very indecisive. I'm always afraid of making the wrong decision.
I'm single and looking and failing miserably. I'm keeping my options open.

I love theatre. It's far more satisfying than film. Sometimes there's a collective sigh from the audience, or it's so quiet you can hear a pin drop. I couldn't believe how easy acting was when there's an audience; after a few previews I almost couldn't do it without one.

I like Joaquin Phoenix. He's an amazing actor and he's so buff.
I'm very quiet. I can go a whole week without talking, so doing interviews is really awkward for me!

One of the things I liked about my character in 'Run' is that she can just disappear into the background if she wants, which is what I'm like.
Katie Leung
I'm not the type of person who enjoys the limelight.
I thought acting was all about natural instinct but I've realised, through working with so many talented actors on 'Wild Swans' and 'Run,' that I can see the training. That's why I am back at drama school.
