Personal Quote:

In my opinion, there aren't as many originals today. Everyone looks the same to me. Where are the Katharine Hepburns, Spencer Tracys, Clark Gables and Bette Davises of today? Those actors were instantly recognizable. Nowadays I have trouble separating one actor from another. See more »

Trivia:

In the mid-1980s, she took up journalism and earned her own byline in "The Guardian", an English newspaper. She has since written articles for National Review, Country Living, Image, The Irish Times and other publications. See more »
