    Billie Piper thinks being a parent makes her a “better actor”

    The ‘I Hate Suzie’ star has Winston, 11, and Eugene, eight, with her ex-husband Laurence Fox, and 21-month-old Tallulah with her boyfriend Johnny Lloyd, and has said being a mother has allowed her to develop a stronger emotional range, because of the “enormous emotions” her kids go through every day


    She explained: "I would say being a parent makes you a better actor ... You're exposed to enormous emotions all day long with children and they are an incredible study. Your feelings around them are also really interesting and deeply powerful. Also you have no time. So you do things quickly, effectively, efficiently. Before kids, you would pore over acting roles, spend days thinking how you were going to say a word and what that word meant. I don't personally do that anymore, and I think it's better for it.”

    Billie, 38, also admitted her ambitions have changed as she’s gotten older, but she’s finally “happy” with where she’s at in her career.

    When asked if her ambitions change with age, she said: "Yeah. I would say they're always changing for me, but within the world that I'm working in now I'm quite happy with where I'm at … I’m happy to be able to say it truthfully. I'm able to say that and actually mean it."

    And the ‘Doctor Who’ alum is “the most satisfied” she’s “ever felt” right now.

    Speaking to her former co-star David Tennant on his ‘David Tennant Does A Podcast With…’ series, she said: "Professionally, I feel the most satisfied I've ever felt. I feel like I'm on a more personal journey myself that feels really meaningful and unending. Professionally, I feel like, this is great. I'm doing work I really, really care about with the people I really care about. Talented people who are also really nice. I feel safe with these people."
