Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I know I'm a familiar face on TV but not a familiar name. People say to me 'I know your face. Do you work at Marks and Spencer? Or the Post Office? Then I'm obliged to say 'No, I'm an actress' and then we have to go through 'what have I seen you in then?'.

British actress, especially notable for her comedy roles on stage and TV. See more »
