Notes

"She's gorgeous, so beautiful, so good, such great poise. I hope she's going to be a big, big movie star. I have a corrupting influence on her. I say: Don't go back to the theater. Make movies."--Anthony Hopkins on his co-star Natascha McElhone quoted in The New York Times, September 15, 1996.

"When I was as young as 3, I would point to the TV and then point to myself. I have always been obsessed, even though it was thought of as being very very obscure to be interested in film where I grew up. Now, I love this lifestyle of being able to flit back and forth across the Atlantic filming. It's dreamy." --McElhone in USA Today, February 27, 1998.
