We're going to make our little animals.
00:04
I've got a giraffe.
00:05
I've got an elephant.
00:06
Now I'm gonna go by this.
00:08
Okay.
00:09
I'm very bad at arts and crafts, I've realized.
00:13
No mine's white Oh my God!
00:15
Sorry.
00:16
Stay in your own lane!
00:17
[laughter]
00:19
Mine's all ready.
00:20
[Lynn] Alright so,
00:21
what was your favorite toy growing up, Emily?
00:25
I had a soft ball called Bally,
00:28
with a ribbon on it.
00:30
And Bally was very well loved
00:32
to the point where he probably could've cleared this room
00:35
with how smelly he was.
00:38
Bally, I think I still had Bally when I was like 12
00:40
which is so embarrassing.
00:42
I had a pillow actually Did you?
00:44
Like a disgusting pillow.
00:45
That I had until I was about 21.
00:47
I think I took it to University, like shamefully.
00:50
Like, no, I was never fan of toys.
00:57
[Lynn] Now have you two met before?
00:59
No. No.
01:00
But this is it, man.
01:01
This is it--
01:02
Friendship, very strong bond of looking rather
01:06
like murderers Shining twins.
01:09
He's got such a wide stance.
01:12
Mine looks like a camel.
01:14
[Lynn] Claire, what was your first email address?
01:16
It's the same one, I've still got.
01:17
I've got the same phone number, the same email address,
01:20
the same password as when the internet was first invented.
01:25
So every time they do that security thing
01:26
which is like someone's going to get
01:27
they will.
01:28
Now you've told everyone how hackable you are.
01:32
There's nothing I've known--
01:34
You've revealed too much, Claire.
01:34
Mine's a white elephant.
01:38
Listen it's our first toy.
01:41
It's my first ever toy.
01:42
Let it, let it play.
01:43
[Lynn] It's actually very beautiful.
01:45
Okay, let's move onto your films.
01:47
So what was the hardest thing about playing Mary Poppins?
01:49
The hardest thing.
01:50
I would say, probably learning how to dance.
01:53
That was the thing that I was most nervous about.
01:55
Day one of rehearsals when you're handed a hat and a cane
01:58
I was like, Oh my God!
01:59
And maybe the initial idea of taking on someone that iconic.
02:04
But then once I kind of got over my fears
02:06
it was just deliciously fun and I loved it.
02:09
You always worry that the first words
02:13
come out of your mouth
02:13
everyone's just gonna go
02:14
Ooh!
02:16
We've made a terrible, terrible terrible mistake.
02:19
We're going back to the rum board.
02:21
[Lynn] Emily, where was your first kiss?
02:25
Oh God, this is so embarrassing!
02:28
It was playing spin-the-bottle
02:30
at my own house.
02:31
I was 13 and his name was Ashley Clarke.
02:35
And he was quite a stud, actually.
02:40
In your house.
02:41
What a surprise!
02:42
Oh my God!
02:44
It was just me and Ashley Clarke playing.
02:49
[Lynn] And were you nervous?
02:50
Were you nervous?
02:50
Oh, I was so nervous!
02:52
It's terrifying.
02:53
Yeah I was so nervous
02:54
I sort of didn't know what I was doing.
02:55
It was a disarming thing to have my first french kiss.
02:59
And the tongue comes at you.
03:03
There's a lot coming at you.
03:05
Just don't really know how to cope with that.
03:07
It was just all rather overwhelming.
03:09
And I remember like, soft tissues he wiping my mouth.
03:12
Oh!
03:13
Ashley, wonder if he's still a stud.
03:15
Probably. Probably, man.
03:16
Chances are. Chances are.
03:18
Once a stud, always a stud.
03:19
There you go.
03:19
[Lynn] Claire, what is your secret skill?
03:22
I'm a fixer, I'm good at fixing things.
03:24
Objects or people?
03:25
Oh!
03:26
Come on, both. Both.
03:27
I love, you know, a light bulb replacement job.
03:31
I'm dreadful at it.
03:32
I also love, if something's broken and you know,
03:35
I've been known to get it work out of my time.
03:37
Good for you.
03:38
I just love mending things.
03:40
And my daughters say, it's okay, mummy will fix it, now.
03:43
Aww!
03:45
Come on.
03:46
And very limited, you'll soon realize that,
03:48
I can't fix some, I'm just waiting for the tire to go
03:50
like on a car or something like that.
03:51
No, mummy can't fix that.
03:52
No, I can't fix that, we're stranded.
03:54
[laughter]
03:55
Mummy not so good.
03:57
My secret skill.
03:58
It's boring to say like I can play the cello.
04:01
But that's like boring.
04:03
I've always wanted to play the cello.
04:04
Yeah, but it's not the kind of fun one.
04:06
To what grade?
04:07
I did all eight grades.
04:08
Did you?
04:09
Of course you did.
04:10
I did.
04:11
Do you have a cello at home?
04:12
You just sit there wistfully go
04:13
[imitating cello sound]
04:13
I honestly, I'm quite rubbish now
04:15
so I think I haven't played for a few years.
04:18
And I think it's because I'm scared
04:19
that I'm not gonna be as good as I used to be.
04:21
Do you know what I'm gonna, I vow to learn in January
04:24
it's a ukulele.
04:25
Cause I think I can bring it with me on set and
04:27
[imitating ukulele sound]
04:29
No really, everyone will enjoy it.
04:30
[Lynn] Okay, well other than each other

I want to know what love is.
05:11

05:14
But you can't do it alone.

Mackrell Crestway.
