Personal Quote:

I was obsessed with work in my youth. It's why I didn't get married until I was 38 and the reason I didn't have kids. Not having children isn't a sadness in my life, though. I know I wouldn't have been a half-bad mother, but that's what happened. There's no regretting it.

Trivia:

Born in Germany and raised in Wales and New Zealand. See more »
