I was thrust for a long moment into international stardom. When that happens, people want to see you in that same persona again and again. Orson Welles once said 'I started at the top and worked my way downward.' I can identify with that. Interview with People Magazine, 1992.

Trivia:

Children: Sarah, with model Cathee Dahmen, and theatre director Charlotte Westenra, with Valerie Tobin.
