What I love is being part of a company. On stage I am not trying to be myself, I'm trying to be someone else, the more unlike me the better.'

Beautifully illustrated with photographs from her own collections, here are reflections and reminiscences on those who have mattered to her most - her family, fellow actors, directors and writers - communicated with the truth and insight of her acting.
