Personal Quote:

I sometimes think, 'If I knew what made Sarah Jane so popular, I'd bottle it'. I love her as a character, and I credit Barry (Barry Letts) for instilling something special in the character. He is a true gentle and honourable man and has such a wonderful take on life. I took some of that influence for Sarah. You also scavenge some of what you are as well. But, I wish I was more like her.

Trivia:

Along with John Leeson, she is one of only two actors to play the same character (Sarah Jane Smith) in four different television productions based in the "Doctor Who" universe: Doctor Who (1963), K-9 and Company: A Girl's Best Friend (1981), Doctor Who (2005) and The Sarah Jane Adventures (2007). She appeared with Leeson's character in all four. See more »
