Personal Quote:

People are really stupid. They think you're serious and intelligent if you're a brunette with a pale complexion and a bit of hooked nose. If you're blonde and pretty, they don't give you that sort of part. It's short-sighted and stupid, but that's how it goes.

Trivia:

Although her Cold Feet (1997) character Rachel was the last of the three female leads to become a mother, Baxendale was actually the first to become a mother in real life. She had her first child in 1998, whilst Fay Ripley had her first in 2002 and Hermione Norris had her first in 2004. See more »
