Personal Quote:

[commenting on her face] I get described as 'interesting' a lot. People often call me odd, too. Maybe they mean ugly. Given the services of a plastic surgeon, I would get a pair of cheekbones.

Trivia:

She added her grandfather's surname Maxwell to her own, to make her stage name, because there was already an Anna Martin in Equity. See more »
