I was lucky enough to be the lady that was asked to be Maria in the Sound Of Music, and that film was fortunate enough to be huge hit. The same with Mary Poppins. I got terribly lucky in that respect.

I don't think I have the image that say, Judy Garland has, or Bette Davis.

I have been called a nun with a switchblade where my privacy is concerned. I think there's a point where one says, that's for family, that's for me.

I am very proud to be British. I'm very conscious of carrying my country with me wherever I go. I feel I need to represent it well.
