#Quote
1 [in 1985] Every actor worth their salt wants to be on Doctor Who (1963). We all hope that apart from being asked to be on Coronation Street (1960) occasionally, we'll also be asked to be on Doctor Who (1963).
2 [on acting, 2011] As long as you don't lose your marbles, you can do it forever. It keeps me feeling young. I've always looked younger than my age, which isn't always the best thing in this profession, especially if they're looking for someone to play a toothless old crone!
