Personal Quote:

[on The Fall (2013)] Tennison [Prime Suspect (1991)] certainly inspired my performance, in that she certainly had an ego and quite evident character flaws. It had been a long time since I'd read a script as good as this, and I was really impressed by how Allan [Allan Cubitt] gets into the psychology of his characters. See more »

Trivia:

Gave birth to her 1st child at age 26, a daughter Piper Maru Klotz (aka Piper Anderson) on September 25, 1994. Child's father is her 1st husband, Clyde Klotz. See more »
