Death's not one of those things that frighten the life out of me. Getting up on stage with the curtain going up frightens me more.
I said to my agent, 'I want short, sharp, well-paid jobs because I haven't got time for anything else.'
I'm a bit of a recluse, very fond of my own company.
I've never been a career builder. I didn't go to drama school and hardly went to any school at all.
I do talk a lot - far more than my husband - but I'm not good at talking to a lot of people. I either talk a lot of rubbish - which I'm sure I do a lot of the time anyway - or I stare at the soup. I'm no good at social presentation.
