Billie Piper

We’re beginning to understand that ‘having it all’ is an unrealistic and stressful goal to work towards. Instead, perhaps we need to be thinking about where to prioritise our energy. Family? Social life? Work? There’s no right or wrong answer, but we do have to be honest with ourselves about how much we can cope with. 

In this chat with Fearne, Billie Piper explains why she’s so passionate about portraying characters who are just as complex on screen as we are in real life. She’s not willing to hide away from tricky emotions, in fact her latest TV work has seen her really lean into pain, with the ultimate goal of making us all feel less alone.
