Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - Actress was thrilled when Steven Soderbergh cast her as a doctor in new film Side Effects - because it enabled her to live out one of her mother's fantasies.

The Welsh actress plays Dr. Victoria Siebert in the star-studded thriller, and admits she has always wanted to portray a medical scholar on the big screen.

She tells Wenn, "i'm actually thrilled that Steven cast me as a doctor because I never went to college and I always wanted an 'M.D.' after my name, so I'm really quite flattered.

"And he fulfilled my mother's dream."

She also hopes the film, about a young woman who commits murder while experimenting with prescription drugs, will make people think more carefully about the pills they're given by doctors: "I think culturally we're all victims to a quick fix whether it's texting or if you want a movie you press a button and it's on; we want everything instantaneously.

"With prescription medicine it's the one thing you can take that will make all this go away - 'I'll try it' and if that doesn't work you see a commercial on TV and try that - 'That seems like a good one'."
