Which cast member have you enjoyed working with the most and who do you feel has brought the best out of you as an actress? I’m extremely fortunate in that all the actors that I work with or have worked with, I’ve loved working with every single one of them. I love them as people and as their characters. I think it would be unfair of me to specify one in particular but possibly Richard, who plays Robb, because we have so much to do together and I love those scenes. - Michelle Fairley
“Does Cersei pray to you too, my lady?” Catelyn asked the Mother. She could see the proud, cold, lovely features of the Lannister queen etched upon the wall. The crack was still there; even Cersei could weep for her children.
It is harder for women to work - whatever the job. There are some wonderful roles for women but unfortunately there aren’t enough, particularly for ageing women. The competition is greater. People need to write more for women because they bring such wonderful qualities of strength and they also need not be afraid to show people growing in years. Don’t be afraid of the way you look because you are progressing through life, be proud of it.

I love Michelle Fairley to death, but she always looks like she either just walked out of a store and can’t find her car, or like she sees you can’t find your car and knows where it is, but isn’t going to tell you where it is because you cut you off one time.
