Personal Quote:

On Joan Ferguson's debut on Prisoner: I have to stay that any menacing stillness that was created in Joan at that point came from sheer terror. Sheer unadulterated terror. I was so scared. I was joining this highly successful show and I thought 'Oh my lord, what am I going to do..' So in all that nervousness and to stop the knees shaking there was just that, stillness. And there she was. See more »
