This wasn't supposed to happen. I just felt so proud then of being in the company of such extraordinary performances. And I know everyone is talking at the moment about women in the industry, but if that's anything to go by, bloody hell. That's technically not swearing. But Sandra Oh, I just love you. Listen, thank you, Emmys. I had the most extraordinary two and a half years of my life. I'm not going to cry on this program. I was given a role that I never thought I would ever get a chance to play. And I met people who I will love forever and ever and ever. And the show goes on, which makes me so, so proud. So I dedicate this to the next cast, the next generation. And I also dedicate this to Matt Smith. Thank you so much. This means so much. Thank you.
