- The first musical you saw and/or most impressed you: PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

- You would like to make a duet with Josh Groban singing the song ”One Hand, One Heart” from WEST SIDE STORY

- London or New York? Mmm…tricky. Love both, but have always wanted to work on Broadway…

- Do you keep the brochures of the musicals you watch? Yes, but my husband is much more organized with them than I.

- The worst moment you’ve live on the stage was: (as a performer and/or as a spectator) I have had many moments of forgetting words or falling over. But, I did watch Chip in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST roll off the edge of the stage in his trolley. No-one could get to it to stop it but thankfully he wasn’t hurt and the little boy loved the drama.

- An unforgettable moment: (as a performer and/or as a spectator) Performing as Cosette in an open air concert of LES MISERABLES in front of 26.000 people with Ruthie as Fantine as it happens.

- Some superstition before the opening night? Not really. I always run out of time and am never quite ready by the time we are called to the stage, so I suppose that has almost become tradition… but no superstitions.

- A musical character that you would like to BE (not perform): Oh, I don’t know… The Lady of the Lake in SPAMALOT, she gets great dresses to wear!!!!

- A character of your opposite sex that you would like to perform: Tony in WEST SIDE STORY

- The more/less that you like of your work: I love working with different people, and working on such a range of projects. I don’t like mid-week matinees though!

- A musical movie: MOULIN ROUGE or the classic, CAROUSEL, or WEST SIDE STORY… so many!

- The last CD/DVD related to Musicals that you have bought is: ‘Lord of the Rings’ musical CD

- A sentence of a musical: A line from the diary/play of Anne Frank I did when I was younger: ‘I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are really good at heart’. It has always stuck with me.

- Agree or disagree with TV Shows finding new Musical Stars: I think bringing musical theatre into peoples homes through the television is great, but casting a leading role through this medium I disagree with.

- You feel proud of: My husband Simon Greiff! He’s a fabulous actor. And I am proud of the work I’ve done especially MARGUERITE.

- Of this moment you’re living as an actress, the most important to you is: I like to be able to work on interesting projects and still be able to spend plenty of time with my husband and friends.

- Projects: Currently too busy with MARGUERITE as we are about to record the CD of the show!
