Personal Quotes (1)

[talking about the fact that she often plays no-nonsense women with feminist tendencies] I don't know why I get cast in these roles, but feisty strong women is kind of my bag really. From Cracker to The Beiderbecke Affair to A Very Peculiar Practice, that's what I get offered. I don't know what casting directors see in me that they think, "We need a feisty old bag, let's get Barbara in." But, truth be told, they are much more interesting to play than really wet women.
