Personal Quote:

[Celebrity culture has led to a "quick fix" mentality on the part of younger actors.] They think a big part will change their life, without any back-up. Young actors go into a run and don't do all the performances. That would have been unheard of at one time. I know I can sustain a run because of my training. See more »

Trivia:

She played a Countess in William Shakespeare's "All's Well That Ends Well" in London West End. See more »

Trademark:

Known for often playing dignified, strong willed women in positions of authority who are sometimes opposed or criticised by those under her.

Star Sign:

Sagittarius
