    • Constance: (on how she defines her style) I'd think I'm very understated. I do like elegant fabrics. I'm not good in anything that "wears me"! I need something that's too overpowering.

    • Constance: Daytime TV is definitely the most work. You have five weeks to rehearse for a Broadway show and then you say the same lines always.... a movie production is thrilled to film 1/2 page a day. A soap has no rehearsal time and shoots 60 pages a day. Don't get me wrong though. I love the challenge of a soap!

    • Constance: (on Susan Flannery) Susan is my idol. She's such a superb actress; she deserves her Emmys and many more. I'd be honoured to work with her. Susan's been nothing but nice to me and I love the Belles as well.

    Constance Towers is one of the most talented stars in Hollywood today, but also one of the most underrated. Her body of work includes Broadway musical theatre, film, television, live concert performances, and, as wife of a former U.S. Ambassador, diplomatic hostessing. She has excellent range as an actress, playing a variety of roles over the course of her career, from a prostitute to a schoolteacher, from a loving mother and romantic heroine to a spiteful and deadly villainess. Blessed with extraordinary, timeless beauty, Ms. Towers is still as lovely today as she was when she first came onto the Hollywood scene. And behind that dazzling exterior is one of the warmest, classiest, most genuine ladies to walk the face of the earth. It's about time Hollywood took more notice of Ms. Towers and offered her a plum movie role or a regular or recurring role on a television series.moreless
