It makes me wonder if this is how Los Lobos started!?
. . . at least the accordion player will give Flaco Jimenez a run for his money some day!
There was a time, because I had a lot success when I was in my teens and 20s and then I went through this period where I looked too young but I actually wasn’t too young, that people still associated me with these younger, waifish ingenue characters even though I could have been a lawyer or something else. I feel like only recently I’ve hit a point where I’m actually old enough to play my age, which is a tremendous relief. I know there’s so much put on youth these days, but I had a weird experience because when I started acting all of my heros were like Ruth Gordon and Gena Rowlands and I always got along with older people. My mom was a hospice worker and I used to go with her, before I was an actress, and I remember saying, “Oh my gosh each one of them there could be a movie about their life.” But there is something very liberating about getting past that weird 30s thing. I’m turning 44 this month and I just feel like I’m finally being offered, or able to play, parts my age.
It stuck in my memory and I didn't recall whether it was actually used in the book or was a conceit used by the TV production and frankly don't really care but here it is!
Now I have to mention here I would watch Samantha Morton in anything and find her an extraordinary talented actress, I first saw her in a TV drama about p[rsoitiutes I believe and then tried to catch all her work and saw again her performance in Jane Eyre opposite . . . . . in which I thought she was outstanding and heartrendingly right as Jane in it. I liked her in the Tom Cruise movie but thought she was under used in it but she is such a fine actor I would as I have said watch her in anything. She is at once attractive and strong, yet able to play parts of plainness and haunting quirkiness as well as mesmerising
