My first job out of drama school in Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood Prince of Thieves,
with the inimitable Alan Rickman, who was unspeakably kind to me.

Useful to be in a wolf mask when the libretto is written by
Salman Rushdie who had a fatwa on his head at the time….
Who doesn’t want to be in a Love Triangle and a black sequin dress at the same time!

3 years at the best drama school (Central) a year training in Paris with Marcel Marceau
and I'm doing what I did when I was 6 years old - putting twigs on my head and pretending to be a lion! Oh the joys of theatre!
Finally I got to be blonde, rich, successful and thin - in Y2K - with a brilliant playwright
(Arthur Kopit), an extraordinary director (Bob Balaban) - and a great New York Times review.
I couldn't have asked for more….
Most soulful stage I've ever worked on - San Luis Obispo Prison.
Very proud to have been a part of Bruce Walls London Shakespeare Workshop
where we work with inmates and prove that treating prisoners with humanity reduces the reoffending rates.
