Personal Quotes (2)

[on Another World (1964)] The demographics were incredible on that show. I think there were nine young leading women under the age of 25. I sometimes think that is what made our director David Pressman lose his hair -- trying to wrangle all those baby "divas".
[on the characters Dorian Lord and Hecuba] I've gone from bitch to witch.
