Editors' Spotlight

Personal Quote:

[about her role in 'The Lair of the White Worm'] "I'm an atheist, so it was actually a joy. Spitting on Christ was a great deal of fun. I can't embrace a male god who has persecuted female sexuality throughout the ages. And that persecution still goes on today all over the world." See more »


She punched out an obsessed fan of her boyfriend Adam Ant when the fan held him at knife point on British TV. See more »
