Best hidden talent
Rock-climbing, although I only tried it for the first time in August. I have a little girl, so I spend a lot of time at playgrounds, where there are tons of tiny climbing courses. Whenever I see one, a part of me goes, Come on, climb that wall! So this summer I went to an indoor rock-climbing gym, and I bloody loved it.
Best holiday tradition
In the Foy household, we put on Bruce Springsteen’s cover of “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” and dance around the living room. And now that I have my own home and family, I really love decorating the Christmas tree. I believe the more color, the better, so I just chuck everything on it.
My housecleaner. I’m actually good at cleaning, but now I can come home without asking myself why I haven’t done this or that.She organizes the cupboards and makes the beds—she’s changed my life. I’m in love with her.
Thinking isn’t always the answer. Sometimes the best thing to do is listen to everything your heart, body, and soul are trying to tell you.
Best dream role
I’m still waiting for one to turn up! If you’re right for a role, it’ll come at the perfect time. And at some point, I hope to discover something beyond acting. Maybe I’ll be the oldest mountaineer ever to climb the Himalayas!
I guess I’m stuck in the 1990s, because I love a good cosmopolitan.
