In real life, she’s very much more cheerful, collected and self-possessed, even when the clock is against us.
This evening she’s already running an hour late, but insists the interview will go ahead for its full length, once she has brokered a deal over childcare.
Next month, she would like to take the children to experience the Edinburgh festivals: “I love that there’s theatre everywhere, and everyone has access to it,” she says.

Natascha Mc Elhone is best known as Karen van der Beek on the Showtime series, Californication. Natascha Mc Elhone: It’s the perennial question isn’t it? I was saying – we were talking earlier on with someone about this and we came to the conclusion that it was actually a male fantasy. And now since movies have become boxing robots, or whatever they are, we debate these television shows. But I did get hooked on – and so it ends up happening in sort of box sets. It’s great too because, like I said, somehow the movies have left us behind. Where, if you even go back in your career, “Laurel Canyon” was kind of like “Californication”. Natascha Mc Elhone: You’re the only person that’s said that and I completely agree. To me, that was like a little template for – and “Californication” was originally a movie script that Tom wrote.

And I, you know, this show slightly preempted me to pass that curve, but God am I glad that it worked out that way. So I was very lucky to end up in a show that was not only successful, but was sort of groundbreaking in its own way. Natascha Mc Elhone: In terms of sort of creating a new morality, if you like. Natascha Mc Elhone: Yeah, it’s a new experience every year as well. * * * Ron Bennington: Well, you know, when you bringing up about the change that took place.
