Personal Quotes (1)

[on portraying Lynne Frederick in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2004)] I had thought very carefully about playing Lynne. I wanted to represent her in a way that I thought was fair - which was a very young girl being taken up in this world of laughter and light, and then finding out the reality. Peter Sellers was completely obsessed by work and it's very difficult to live with someone like that.
