Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Honesty, humor and good faith.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Is Miss Haversham, from Great Expectations a villain? I think she is, although only because she is bitter and lonely and burning with anger. I read that Dickens based her on a real bride who was jilted on her wedding day and never took off her dress again. What a powerful, compelling dark and dangerous character!

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I would love to be able to really sing.
