Personal Quote:

I do occasionally get lovely offers from theatres still, but I'm at an age where I want to be with my kids. I live in Devon and if I was in London's West End for six nights a week, I couldn't actually get home. I need to get my kids more settled before I start going away, because that would be at least a six-month contract, and I'm just not ready to do that.

Trivia:

In July 1996, she released a single, a cover of The Exciters' hit "Tell Him", with her British Men Behaving Badly (1992) co-star Leslie Ash under the name "Quentin and Ash". The single reached number 25 in the UK charts. See more »
