Full interview with Sarah Norman - Read
yourself in five words?
Pass! Too difficult.
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Listen more than you talk.
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
Once a group of us decided to stage an entire play in ten
days. It was madness.
is your most treasured possession?
Probably at the moment my passport, if only because the
12 hours I spent queuing to renew it are still painfully fresh in
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
have any strange hobbies?
Sadly, no. Maybe I should try and acquire some.
do you dislike most about your appearance?
I don't know how it is, but I am STILL spotty, despite
no longer being an adolescent.
is your greatest extravagance?
Plane tickets, by far.
have you got in your fridge?
Vegetables, mostly. Milk, cheese. Half an apple pie. Yum
is your greatest fear?
Death. I'm not one of those who can view it philosophically.
have you got in your pockets right now?
is your favourite journey?
Anytime I'm going somewhere new.
are your heroes in real life?
He's dead, but at the minute I'm sort of in awe of the
novelist Anthony Trollope. He wrote for 3 hours every morning before
breakfast and then went off to his full time job. He was a massive
figure in the civil service as well as an acclaimed novelist, and
he worked every hour of the day. It's incredible. He said "My
entire career is based on the discipline of early hours".
God. I don't know how he did it.
and where were you happiest?
I think I might be happiest right now.
your biggest vice?
I'm not very neat.
were you like at school?
are you doing next?
I am about to go on tour around the US and UK with Shakespeare's
Globe's production of 'The Merry Wives of Windsor.'
