Personal Quote:

I think I always was an actress. It was a matter of finding out that acting was a profession. That happened the first time I ever saw a play. It was put on by high school kids who lived in the neighborhood; and I suddenly realized that all those people on television and the movies were actors. Once I knew that,it wasn't a matter of that's what I wanted to be, but that's what I was. See more »
