Did You Know?
I remember being about eight and watching Pollyanna
(1960) with Hayley Mills
. I looked at my mum and said, 'Mum, I want to be Pollyanna.' She said, 'You're going to have to make yourself cry if you want to be an actress.' So I turned my head away, and when I turned it back I was in floods of tears.
Left school at the age of 17 and moved to London to study drama.
