Inspiring quotes by Lesley Manville

The top 10 most inspiring quotes by Lesley Manville

  • Corinne Bailey Rae I listen to a lot, and I’ll hear Desert Island Discs and quickly write down the name of a song, and it will open up a new area of music for me. I discovered an Argentinian guitarist, Jose Luis Bieito, on Classic FM.
  • It would never occur to me not to look dreadful if that’s the job description.
  • When I was eight, it was clear I was a very good singer.
  • If I go away, I take a little picture of my son. It’s in a frame with a speaker, and he recorded a birthday message for me when he was nine or 10. I can’t listen to it without filling up.
  • I’ve got two older sisters who I’m very close to. And my son’s grown up with a big sense of family around him.
  • I still sing, but completely for my own pleasure. I play a nightclub singer in ‘Sparkle,’ but I’d like to pursue it a bit more. I sang at a friend’s 60th at Claridge’s the other month; I did ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ with the actor Hilton McRae, and ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’
  • For Kitty Gilbert in ‘Topsy-Turvy,’ I had to get to the point where I could improvise in the style of 1880, which is difficult. The research for that was huge.
  • In 1990, I was in ‘The Three Sisters’ at the Royal Court and won the Clarence Derwent award for my supporting role as Natasha – the prize was £100. I could have paid the gas bill, but I ended up buying a porcelain and silver Bavarian coffee set in an antiques shop in Penzance.
  • I’m quite chameleon in my work – not normally looking much like I do in real life.
  • There isn’t a spare minute in the day. I have spent my life doing everything. I work. I go home. I do the shopping. I cook. Then there’s the laundry and the dog. Most of my life, I have been a working mother. And even when I wasn’t, I still did it all.
