Maggie Kirkpatrick: (on aging) I'm seeing everything in a very light-hearted way these days. Things that, you know, 20 to 30 years ago or even 10 to 15 years ago I might have seen as painful, I'm now looking at with older eyes and I think 'oh, Christ did I really, how could I have been so f**ing stupid?' and have a laugh about it. Which is quite wonderful, not to have any sort of bitter regrets about things, to be able to say what a silly bastard I was. But it's all kind of growing up, I suppose. Some of us are late developers, and it's taken me till now to realise that this is who I am. As an actor one is always terrified of what people think of one, but I think I've been growing towards this piece of mind for a long time. This is it. I don't have to pretend to be anything other than Maggie.
