"From the first moment I met her in London, I knew it was going to be easy. Some people are just easy to work with, and you watch her and you look at her face and think, ‘What is she doing that’s so special?’ You can’t define [her charm], it’s just there - it’s all there, everything! She is always spot-on and perfectly informed. It still amazes me that she was 17 when we shot the film. I worked most closely with her and with William Hurt, two masters of their craft, and both were so humble, patient and generous. It was a joy."
Before the war I used my willpower for stupid stuff, like not eating chocolate. I think I thought if I could control myself, then maybe the world around me would start to make sense. I guess I was pretty naive back then.
