sometimes it does all feel like everything’s been getting stretched a bit thin and we’re not really doing things as well as we want to be, but that’s life, i think. life’s not perfect - i’m okay with that.
"Nobody gets to say who we love, or who we lay down beside, or take as our husband, lover, life, or bride. Nobody gets to decide what’s for some, that others should hide. Pride. Nobody gets to choose but YOU." - Maria Doyle Kennedy for Pride 2014 (x)
Hi, this is for Graeme, John and Maria, and I want to thank you for writing well realised multidimensional women of a certain age created and realised beautifully by you, Maria, thank you very much. You’ve played this character somewhat through multiple programs, films, television. Is there anything that you reach for - a common thread - to bring strong, sometimes manipulative - and I don’t mean that negatively - is there anything you reach for to realise these characters and to bring them so beautifully to life onscreen?
