christmas music makes me forget there’s real problems in the world
"She’s always trying to make up for something. Right some imaginary wrong.
Haunted, I guess.”
“She’s very, very stubborn. She doesn’t like to lose. But she sees the best in people, even when they don’t see it themselves.”
"She gave me a purpose: She taught me to believe in something bigger than myself. She taught me to fight to keep our world safe"
"She gave me a place to call home.A place I’d want to call home"
"There was no one like her." - Peter Bishop

I remember wanting to become an actress since about five years old. I blame a lot of it on an actress friend called Lisa Harrow who swept into our lives about then. She seemed impossibly glamorous and beautiful and both my brothers and father had massive crushes on her. I remember thinking whatever she is doing she has got it right. I still wonder today if Lisa had been a plumber, my life would have taken a different turn. Later on, when I was thirteen my father became dreadfully ill and it was then that I looked up theatrical agents in the yellow pages and phoned one up and got on her books. It might have been a curious reaction to have when your father was critically ill in intensive care, but looking back with the long, birdseye view that time can give, I can see it made perfect sense: I did it in attempt to escape and create my own reality, which is what acting can be – a loss of yourself into somebody else. A holiday from myself. What I can’t get over is that I have been paid very good money taking all these holidays.
