In 1969, director Tony Richardson cast Faithful in the movie version of Nicol Williamson's Hamlet (1969), which had been an international success. Francesca Annis had played Ophelia to Williamson's Gloomy Dane in London, on Broadway and during an American tour. Ironically, Roman Polanski nixed both Williamson and Faithful for the roles of Macbeth and His Lady in the 1971 adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth (1971), Williamson for lacking sex appeal and Faithful because of her heroin addiction. Polanski cast Annis as Lady Macbeth instead.
Once [Mick Jagger] came straight off stage to the hotel where I was waiting and he was absolutely terrifying. He was like somebody possessed. I don't think he even knew who I was. He still had his make-up on and there was a froth of spittle around his mouth and his eyes were violent and he was making grunting sounds. He didn't say a word; just those god-awful grunts. He picked me up and slammed me against the wall. Several times. Afterwards, I don't think he even remembered it.
My favorite instrument in the whole world is the human female voice, and Kate Bush is one of the reasons why. It is by far a Stradivarius, which is why she rarely details with the press or isn't in a rush to record. She's one of the few who can be above all that.
