Tamzin Outhwaite Quotes
- It taught me my trade on multi-camera, working with four cameras in a very quick speed, how to learn lines really quickly, how to be flexible and change lines when they re-write. I mean I wouldnt have had that training anywhere else, so that really just prepared me for all of the other drama that happened afterwards. (On "EastEnders" (1985) )
- I love Matt Smith (XI) , hes so exciting to work with. But he also makes you feel really comfortable. Part of me wishes Id had him there from minute one on the show ["Doctor Who" (2005) ], because I might have done things differently.
