’My father equated acting with prostitution, so I compromised and did a

degree in English and Drama. After graduating, I tried to get an Equity

card by doing ghastly things like Bulgarian wine commercials, where you

didn’t even get to taste the wine - it was just foul pink liquid.’



Next she founded a theatre group. ’I set up a drama class at my old

school. It all went well until we used the word ’sex’ three times in one

of our plays.’



From then on it was clear she was destined for a career in sales.
