I don’t understand this need to tweet – to put yourself out there every minute of the day. Social media worries me because it’s not part of my world. I have a computer and an iPad, but I have no interest in Twitter. Noel and Reece are constantly tweeting, and I said to them, ‘You are obsessed. The minute you stop filming, you’re tweeting,’ and they say, ‘But the fans love it.’ I feel I’m exposed enough in the work that I do, and anything else I want to keep as private as possible.
I notice a pear-shaped ring with a border of diamonds on her engagement finger. ‘Yes, there is someone,’ she laughs, ‘no, he’s not famous; yes, he is a Brit. I’m very happy right now; I’ve got somebody in my life who’s an incredible support and really understands me. It’s a huge relief to have met somebody like that.’

The star of ER and, more recently, Doctor Who actually looks fresh, cool and pretty, with her distinctive halo of gold Pre-Raphaelite curls…
Alex Kingston is nursing a hangover when we meet for breakfast in New York. You’d never know it. There are protestations that she looks a mess, accompanied by an amused glance down at her Nikes (‘I walked across Central Park,’ she explains). But the star of ER and, more recently, Doctor Who actually looks fresh, cool and pretty, with her distinctive halo of gold Pre-Raphaelite curls, full lips and wide smile.
Alex lives in Los Angeles with her 13-year-old daughter Salome, but has been staying in Manhattan while playing Lady Macbeth opposite Kenneth Branagh in an excellently reviewed production of ‘the Scottish play’. There’s a performance this evening, but that didn’t deter her from overdoing it last night with her ‘absolute best friend’ from Rada, who is over from the UK. ‘We had a bit too much to drink,’ laughs Alex. Given the fact that she’ll be on stage in a few hours, the actress is impressively relaxed and very friendly.
