Stephen Fry, who’s now on the show, said he was a huge fan and was excited to meet me, which threw me a little. It was a cool challenge to see ‘this is Chloe like we’ve never seen her before’ written in the script and to go through what that meant and work with the hair, make-up and wardrobe people to put that together. Or like Titanic – I’d like to be standing at the front of a boat with the wind in my hair and my arms outstretched with my breasts heaving when I get shot in the head. We’re filming episodes nine and ten now but I still don’t know what happens in 11 and 12. That’s what’s special about 24 – they keep you on the edge of your seat. Stabbed in the heart with a wooden stake like a vampire.I was like: ‘You can print a gun out of those 3D printers, I want to see that in the show, you’re welcome,’ but so far there’s been nothing.There’s a Wikileaks-inspired element to this series – are you interested in all of that?I was getting into trouble for spoilers years after the last series finished. I was nervous at first because when the Brits were on stage, things that were getting laughs went right over my head.
I throw in stuff like: ‘Hey, I just topped up my Oyster card’ and people seem to think that’s cool. I’d start talking but each time I got off the podium, the papers fell off and the podium collapsed.So it really looked like it was a comedic act when it wasn’t supposed to be.
