Personal Quote:

In those days - it seems impossible now - nice girls didn't go to bed with people before they were married. I had been brought up by my British father. You just didn't do that. You did not sleep with them or live with them.

Trivia:

She will appear on Broadway this spring in a limited-run revival of Stephen Sondheim's "Follies" as-surprise-the wife of a husband-and-wife song-and-dance team, performing the song "Rain On the Roof". See more »
