"Didn't it ever occur to you, not even once, that Sherlock's secret brother might just be Sherlock's secret sister?"

No, to be honest, it didn't. The reveal of Eurus Holmes in Sherlock took us entirely by surprise – the latest in a long line of mega-twists delivered by the show.

The character's debut had been teased throughout the latest series, with actress / human chameleon Sian Brooke taking on a variety of different guises before her character's true identity was revealed.

Digital Spy spoke to Sian less than 48 hours after transmission of 'The Final Problem' to talk about the past and future of Eurus, and just how she managed to fool us all.

Who is new Sherlock star Sian Brooke?

So the secret's out! Did you notice a slow-burn response to your appearance in Sherlock, given how your role was revealed bit-by-bit?

Oh yeah. After the first episode, loads of people were saying, "Did I just see you in Sherlock?" – lots of people said, "Nice wig!" and a couple of people said, "That does not suit you, that wig..."

Then in the second episode, they just didn't expect it to be that sort of part, so I got a lot of texts in capital letters: "OH MY GOD" and "WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?"

You must feel proud to have fooled so many people with those different personas.

I just feel immensely relieved, and glad that we achieved that, because that was the ultimate goal – to be able to hide in plain sight. It was very brave.

When they said that we weren't going to use any prosthetics, I sort of gulped and thought, "Oh right, okay!" – I really had to draw on my many years of experience to be able to do it, but it was a challenge.

How much of the fake Faith, or the therapist, or the woman on the bus, was in the script and how much were you allowed to play?

Faith was different, because I had to match with the actress who was playing the original (Gina Bramhill) so we sort of had to go off each other. We had an afternoon where we tried to match the pitch of our voices and the intonation, and also had to match Toby – where he was placing his Northern accent.

The others... I came in with various things and we talked about it and discussed which one would work. In terms of physicality, I just played around at home and tried to find the rhythms of the different characters. Yeah, it was up for grabs.

You actually auditioned for all those parts separately – without knowing you were going up for Sherlock's sister. How do you think you would've felt, had you known?

I would have been terrified! I'm so glad that they didn't tell me. I could just throw colours at it and then they could see what I was capable of, what I could do.

Would you have approached the audition differently if you'd known?

Yeah, I may have done. It would've just been more knowing [but] there's a real freedom in not knowing. You're not thinking ahead – we don't in real life, so it's quite nice if you just play the moment.

You'd worked with Benedict Cumberbatch before on Hamlet, playing Ophelia – that must've helped, having an immediate chemistry on-set?

Yeah, it can't help but influence it in some way. It meant that there's a relationship there already, you're not trying to play something. We already knew each other and so therefore, even though they haven't been in each other's lives, that family connection was just there and hopefully you can see it.
