‘Sound bite’ of the week
“Not in a billion years did I think I would be made a dame; it never even crossed my mind. It wasn’t anything I ever aspired to. I just wanted to be a jobbing actress, a working actor and somebody who could still perform.” – Veteran actress Joan Collins shares her reaction with the press, after receiving her damehood earlier this week, from Prince Charles at a Buckingham Palace investiture. (Reported in the Los Angeles Times, via the BBC).
