Personal Quotes (2)

Although I play silly parts, in order for others to share in the laughter I think it's important to have a heart that's full of joy and gratitude. Joy is a very holy thing and we can never own it. We can only reflect it.
As a young teenager when I was attending ballet school, my teacher told me I'd never be a ballerina and I was never much of a singer, but I continued to get leading roles in musical theatre because of the comedy. I consider comedy as a very special gift to me. So many people ask if I hate doing similar roles but I try to explain that even within the specialized area of light comedy and ditzy blondes, there are wonderful nuances that are infinitely interesting to me.
