Personal Quote:

c. 1986: "My brother John tells me the movie profession has changed completely and that I should stay where I am. He insists that I'd have to study acting, but I was told never to take lessons - that I was an instinctive actress. Most of the performances I see on TV and in movies are so self-conscious and overacted. I would think a natural actress would be welcome. See more »
