Morton has said she was always a chatterbox in class and someone who beat up the bullies. She left her school West Bridgford Comprehensive at the age of thirteen and joined England's Central Junior Television Workshop. She had been encouraged by a drama teacher and kept writing to them until they accepted her. She left the workshop when she was 16 and joined the prestigious Royal Court Theatre Group.

Morton had never seen a Woody Allen film - she didn't go to the movies as a child - and didn't know how revered he is and almost didn't do Sweet and Lowdown as it interfered with another project (Hamlet with Ethan Hawke). The film got her a lot of attention Stateside and she was nominated for an Oscar. Her rival for the award was supposed to be Catherine Keener, but they both lost to Angelina Jolie.

Quotations: "Acting and music are self indulgent professions and they are a luxury unless you love what you do. I have a love/hate relationship with what I do. I think, 'Where's the relevance of this? I'm not a doctor, I'm not an aid worker.' But then I think you only have one life and I am a vessel for stories to be told."

"In films, it's just that one minute you're strong, then you're told you're difficult. The minute you say, 'No, I won't take my top off' or 'No, I won't work overtime', you're bloody difficult."
