Did You Know?
I'm an actress and I am a scholar of English literature. And I never know which part of that is more important to me. I think it obviously must be the acting part because otherwise I would have become an academic, which I didn't do. But I've always had a love of English literature and particularly of Charles Dickens
She is a huge admirer of the works of Charles Dickens
and has toured the world in a one-woman show, Dickens' Women, inspired by the females in his works.
