Fighting Back When Needed

"In a way, I suppose I'm good at fighting back if I need to. I think you always find strength physically and mentally when you need it," she added.

Asked what she is scared of, she said: "Speaking publicly, especially at big events. Silence frightens me too. I'm a city girl, so I'm not used to silence. I would be terrified if you put me in a country home by myself, surrounded by woods and silence. And water, I'm afraid of deep water."

Tolerance To Dark Material

"Also, something you can't see - an invisible presence or an invisible threat is terrifying because you're just powerless. I could go on and on," she said. One thing that doesn't scare Moss is horror films.

She said, "I have a very high tolerance for dark material and am not easily frightened. I love horror. I love scary movies. I always have, ever since I was little. When I was 11 or 12, me and my friends from ballet school used to have sleepovers. We would watch all the scary movies - It, Poltergeist, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street and The Shining. I guess I've never been too afraid to watch them."
