"My advice to anyone thinking about a career in the theatre is this: you must face up to the knowledge of just how much talent there is about, how many other people have come to the same decision as you and how, the moment you're unable to take on a job, there will be a host of people at your shoulder waiting to take the part over...." ~ Dame Judi Dench
