Born: December 28, 1934 in Ilford, Essex, England, UK

One went to school, one wanted to act, one started to act, and one’s still acting.

“Jude is the most incredibly level person. Generous, understanding. All the things I’d have to work very hard at, Jude is like that all the time. I would love to be like that. And working with Jude you have to try to remember that you ought to be like that” [on her friend Judi Dench].

I wanted to be a serious actress, but of course that didn’t really happen. I did Desdemona [at the National, opposite Olivier] with great discomfort and was terrified all the time. But then everyone was terrified of Larry.
