    Still Alice by Lisa Genova

    ‘I read this book and instantly fell in love with it. So much so, that I enquired if it was to be made into a film, which in fact, it was. I was cast as Anna and Julianne Moore plays the main role of Alice.’

    1984, Norwegian Wood, Kafka on the Shore by Murukami

    ‘Murukami is one of my favorite authors. He is prolific in exploring human nature and relationships. He is fearless doing so.’

    The Corrections, Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

    ‘Franzen is a total genius. Satire at its best. Everyone will relate in some way or another to one of these dysfunctional and unapologetically flawed family members.’

    The Little Prince by Antoine Marie Jean-Baptiste

    ‘This is my favourite children’s book for adults. A reminder to always use your imagination.’

    90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper and Cecil Murphey.

    ‘My husband adapted this inspiring novel into a screenplay and will direct. We are to begin filming in February. Hayden Christensen plays Don and I play his wife, Eva.’

    Still Alice is in cinemas from 6 March.

    Kate’s shoe collection for Matisse launches in March.
