Episodes star Tamsin Greig has revealed that she often gets mistaken for a man.
Talking on The Graham Norton Show, the 49-year-old actress explained that people sometimes get her gender confused – even toddlers, reported Digital Spy.
“It happens quite a lot. We will go out for a meal and the waiter will say, ‘And for you sir?’ I was walking down a street once and there was a toddler who’d just learnt to name things. He was pointing and saying ‘car’ and ‘tree’ and ‘birds’ and then he pointed at me and said, ‘man’,” she said.
Not only that, but Greig noted that while she’s started getting noticed in the US since starring in Episodes, her name is proving more of a challenge to pronounce – and she’s even been referred to as “Tamsin Grief”.
She also spoke about starring alongside Frasier star Kelsey Grammer in new movie Breaking the Bank, now out in UK cinemas.
“I wasn’t intimidated because he is an incredible gentleman, warm and appreciative, very supporting and very funny. And he was very close to tears all the time,” Greig joked.
