“My kids don’t watch any TV, but they watch videos and films. I’m sure they watch it at friends’ houses. And my eldest got a Wii for his birthday last year. We had held off on it for a while. Then my husband said, let him play it–a few weeks later he’ll get bored. And he did. He played it manically for a month but that was it in the end.” – Cate on Dashiell’s TV and video game habits.

β€œIt toughens you up and makes you more pragmatic, yet at the same time it turns you into a bowl of mush. You see a child in distress or a puppy waiting to cross the street and you just want to weep. Maybe that mix is good for an actor. I guess the great thing is that it increases your ability to switch on and off. The work is no longer the only thing in your life. Other things count – and count more.” – Cate on being a mother to three beautiful boys.
