Keeley Hawes (born 10 February 1976) is a British-English actress, known for many television roles, notably that of Zoe Reynolds in the BBC One drama series Spooks (2002-04).

Hawes first came into the public eye in the early 1990s, in 1990s Troublemakers and the 1992 BBC costume drama, The Moonstone. She has since appeared in many other television dramas, including Dennis Potter's Karaoke (BBC One/Channel 4, 1995), and Othello (ITV, 2001).

(on watching her figure) "Life is simply too short to think about everything you put in your mouth, and it's not good for children to see you picking over bits of salad."

"I think that it's pointless staying in a loveless marriage. I wasn't in a loveless marriage but if you're not happy, then that reflects - doesn't it? - on your children. Happy grown-ups make for happy children."

"I'm not self-conscious about my body, but I think I will keep it covered up after having three children. There comes a time when you have to say, 'Hmm, that's it, I think I'll save it for indoors."

(on what she clings on from childhood) "I think I've still got quite a childish sense of humour, and I'm quite giggly. I've been like that since I was quite little. I'm the worst for corpsing. I should make a mint in outtakes"

"We now think low-slung hipsters are very sexy but actually back then it was all about the waist. It took a while to get my head around the high waists – I was thinking, 'Gosh, this makes my bum look really long!"

Future Titles
" I really like working in TV because it’s different every single day"
"Barking or Belgravia? Belgravia. I’m common though, so I can say that"
"In winter I like to light a little fire, have a bath - all those things. God, I sound so old and boring!"
