When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was,” she says, “‘What the fuck are you doing?’ they’d say. ‘Why do you sound like that? That doesn’t sound sexy to me.’ And then I started saying, Oh, that’s not sexy to you? Good. I’m going to do it more. Maybe I don’t want to be sexy for you today.
The only character I had problems with in the first series, less so in this one, was myself. I didn’t want to do it like Vince [from The Mighty Boosh] but Vince was 60 per cent me anyway. So I was trying not to do Vince, except Vince is me. So in the second series I just went “Right, it’s me, but it’s me now, I’m running a coffee shop.”
