Helen McCrory has joked she and Damian Lewis live their every day life like spies because of their exciting acting roles.

The Harry Potter star plays a government official in new James Bond film Skyfall, while husband Damian stars in hit US CIA thriller Homeland.

Helen laughed: "We've got snipers outside, we go outside in our bulletproof vests. 'Go, go, go, go. Into the car, kids! You're late for the school run!"

She added: "No, it's fine. It's normal."

The 44-year-old actress revealed she loved coming up against Dame Judi Dench, who plays MI5 chief M in Skyfall.

Helen said: "I come as a rival to M, to cross examine her, but she's intellectually in my cross line, rather than with a gun.

"It's fantastic. I've worked with Judi before and known her for years and she brings everybody's game up."
