Personal Quote:

[on the end of Waking the Dead (2000)] I feel robbed. I'm very sad about it. It was a lovely job. The show gets great audiences, it's sold all over the world and I don't quite get why it's going. You'd have to talk to the powers-that-be. They say it's too expensive to make in these austere days. See more »

Trivia:

She was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2009 Queen's Birthday Honours List for her services to Drama and to To Charity. See more »
