Met her lots of times at various small conventions

Really lovely, sexy, intelligent, self deprecating, unbelievably nice person

One thing she said really sticks in my mind

"some actresses go through years of angst and worry about when they will 'make it', I just cut my hair, wore a sprayed on jumpsuit and acted really evil, and in only two episodes I had eight year old boys coming up to me in the supermarket saying ' my mate really fancies you - and so does my dad'"
