Susannah York 1939-2011

Some Susannah York quotes:
[on being labeled a 'film star'] "I hated that appellation, I was an actor. I did not want to have an image, be seen as the blue-eyed, golden-haired ingénue. Being a 'star' seemed to lock you into an image and I was always frightened of that because I knew I would disappoint people. I knew I wouldn't be like that and I didn't want them to get the wrong end of the stick so early on."

"I`m an infinitely better actress now than I was 30 years ago because I`ve had experiences and I`ve learned. I do look back on some roles and think I was dreadful, but I`m not going to tell you which performances I`m talking about"

  1. RIP, lovely Susannah. Was there anyone more beautiful than she was in "Tom Jones"? And not only gorgeous but funny too. Good for her for never trading in on her looks but going for the serious work.
