“I don’t think it is a good thing for a player to keep to one style of part. However, there are some types of character I cannot play, like ingenue, for istance. Therefore, I like stories of the strong, dramatic kind. But the characters must be human, true to life. The so-called vamp grew tiresome because she wasn’t human.”Louise Glaum
