Personal Quote:

The last thing I want to see at the movies is a version of my reality. I don't want to see art imitating life.

Trivia:

Provided the base sound that the Nazgul scream was created from. She was sick at the time, and to provide additional motivation one of the sound techs told her to "scream like peter just bought the rights to the Silmarillion" (the Silmarillion being another Tolkien story, covering the entire history of middle earth back to its creation and beyond).
