I was a sickly child, contracting tuberculosis at the age of five.
The corsets I wore in The Railway Children are still in my undies drawer, a prized relic of my favourite film.
What a thrill it was to play opposite Maurice Evans in this brilliant, dazzling musical, based on the life of two of the greatest personalities in stage history.
Over my desk hangs a poster from The Railway Children that my husband had framed for me. It is so lovely to see the children smiling as they run down the railway track.
Until Genevieve I had tended towards the more dramatic type of role.
