"Getting the gang back together would have felt artificial," Murray told Time Out London.

"This is my story - I know how much I changed between 18 and 23, and this Cassie feels like a new character.

"She's in London with no friends, detached and numb, not willing to connect with the world at all. She's seeking purity, something to make her life meaningful and worth living."



She added: "There's still an extremity to her character, but she's not so self-destructive now. She is very introverted and serious and overthinks things, which I do a lot.

"There's so much pain to her - she's never been fun to play. To be her is a weight - I always feel incredibly sorry for her."
