Who was your childhood hero?

When I was a child I don’t think I really thought much about heroes outside my own family. I have very few memories of that time. I would like to say my mother, but I honestly don’t know. Perhaps more my father.

When you were a child, what did you want to become?

I wanted to become an actress. I already knew this when I was about 10 and had no doubts at all. I only started having misgivings when I was at drama school and felt that my passions extended beyond just ‘acting’. That threw me for a bit, but fortunately later on I discovered that it is not a question of either/or, but of and/and. At least, that’s the choice I have made in my life.

I cannot choose between my various passions. I choose to be able to do everything in life. Or a lot anyway.

What was your most unforgettable experience on stage?

A reason to talk has been an unforgettable experience for me on so many occasions. The performance requires such a high level of concentration, both from myself and my audience, that I often get the feeling I’m in a transcendental spiral of energy. That may sound a bit vague, but the opposite is true. I feel and hear almost everything throughout the performance. Also from my audience. Even though I sit with my back to them and I cannot see them. It has enriched me as an actor. In fact, just the triumph of conquering the fear, of finally daring to create my own performance, is in itself memorable.
