Personal Quote:

I'm more frightened than interested by artificial intelligence - in fact, perhaps fright and interest are not far away from one another. Things can become real in your mind, you can be tricked, and you believe things you wouldn't ordinarily. A world run by automatons doesn't seem completely unrealistic any more. It's a bit chilling.

Trivia:

In addition to being an actor and comedian, she is also a professional dancer specialized in the tap and jazz dance styles. She is also trained in musical theatre and has a mezzo-soprano singing voice. See more »
