“[Playing Sherlock is] a gift of a role, it’s a real pleasure…I have no complaints or difficulties with it. It’s the kind of challenge every actor should relish, and I genuinely can say that. It’s really good fun to do. The hours are long, it’s tough, and all the rest of it, but you know, I’m still getting paid to do what I love…It’s a joy, it’s an absolute joy.” (photo)
“And here it is that I miss my Watson. By cunning questions and ejaculations of wonder he could elevate my simple art, which is but systematized common sense, into a prodigy.” — The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier (1926), Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
I think everyone’s dream is to be an actress, but I never really thought it was going to happen. Now that it’s happening, it’s incredible. I do a lot of other things, too. I’m not stuck in this little world. I’m aware that we’re in the middle of an economic crisis in the U.S. There’s a lot going on in the world, and I’m really happy and excited about what I have and I don’t take it for granted. I’m pretty lucky.
