During the interview former tomboy Rachel also revealed her latest on-screen role is one she had never dreamed of doing. "As a child in North London, it never crossed my mind that I would ever play the Wicked Witch of the East. I was kind of a tomboy climbing trees so it never crossed my mind, no."
