London, March 31 (IANS) Australian actress Mia Wasikowska says she used to be "boring" when she was a kid. She as a kid liked to fit in with the crowd.
The 23-year-old insists she never set herself apart from the crowd when she was younger and was always happy to fit in with her peers.

"I was very shy and spent all my time dancing. I used to dance up to 35 hours a week; it was the place where I found passion, friendship and experiences. Acting replaced dancing when I had to quit for a foot injury," she added..
The "Jane Eyre" star also admitted she likes knitting.
"I love knitting. Oops, maybe I shouldn't have said that, it's not good for my image,".she added.
