BAFTA winner actress said, "I definitely want to try something different, maybe like a Downton Abbey role. It's rare to see someone who has done the work I have to be seen in that kind of production. Yet an actress known for those roles will do a traumatic part, and they'll be the best in the world. So many Northern actors give that level of performance all the time, but there's seems to be the idea that 'ah well, they're Northern, they can do it."
Chanel further adds, "And yet we're not given a chance to play 'a lady' in a period drama. There is definitely a class issue. That becomes more apparent the older I get. Although I'd also like to be a superhero. I always wanted to be the Pink Power Ranger when I was younger. I like to try different things."

I thought, 'I can't do this!'. Imagine my mum and dad seeing that! It was bad enough when they came to screening for My Name Is Lenny, with a sex scene in it. You don't see anything, but it is cringe."
