"I am interested in playing extra-ordinary women, but I have an ordinary life."

Rachel has also spoken about how she and director Darren juggle their work Commitments in order to provide a stable environment for Henry.

She explained: "I have to consider where I'm travelling to if Darren's going to be working at the same time.

"I filmed 'Agora' in Malta for four months and Darren edited there. I started and he came out two weeks later with his editor. Before that we were both at home in New York, so we've managed to keep the family together and it works."
