Personal Quotes (1)

[on why she became an actress] I figured it was a way of exploring things. You get to find out about life, people, travel, research. I've hung around emergency wards, blind people, handicapped children, studied Lamaze technique. For me, it's not a process of hiding behind a character, but a confrontation with myself. I'll attempt to open up blocked areas in me and try to do something about them.
