How do you like your steak cooked?
I am very fussy about my steak. It has to be fillet steak with as little marbling as possible. I like my steak cooked medium-well, so it’s browning on the outside but still a little red in the middle. I can’t eat steak if it isn’t tender either.
Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
Yes. Some have said I resemble Rachel Weisz; others have said Drew Barrymore. I’ve also been told I look like Sara Rue.
Do you have a job?
I do. I’m a sub-editor for a newspaper.
If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to change a regret?
I’d like a million euro, please. I don’t believe in regrets. Everything in life is a learning experience.
How do you feel about Valentine’s day?
I have not decided yet. The rebel in me wants to say it’s a holiday invented by greeting card companies, and that it makes you feel like crap if you have nobody to celebrate it with. On the other hand, I like romance and I like feeling special. Of course, you have to treat your partner well every day of the year. You don’t need to assign a day to do that.
Which shoe do you put on first?
The left one. It feels a little strange if I put the right shoe on first.
Your favourite film.
I love films, so I have a whole list of films I love to bits. I would say my all-time favourites, however, were Donnie Darko, Moulin Rouge!, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Do you play any instruments?
I studied music theory for 12 years, and took piano lessons for 10 years. When I was 15, I got my first guitar and taught myself to play chords. I also sing.
Do you have any pets?
We don’t have any pets in the apartment, no. My dog, Gaia, lives with my parents. I miss her but she’s a pretty big dog. This apartment is definitely not big enough for her. I’d love to get a pet but both Andrew and I work so we don’t really have the time to spend with an animal. Also, I’m scared of animals making a mess in my apartment.
What are you afraid of?
I have a really intense fear of cockroaches. I don’t like flying and I hate heights.
