Patricia: (On her character in Holby City) I think she would do anything for her friends, she's always bailing Ric out isn't she. And it's a little known fact that she's a magnificent dancer. Naturally I share both these qualities with Diane.
Patricia: I've become a lot more confident as I've got older. I was hugely shy and unsure of myself when I was in my teens. As for appearing confident in my roles, I think that could be to do with the characters I was playing being quite sassy themselves!
Patricia: (On what inspired her to become an actress) Fame. Money. And a hope that one day I might work with Hugh Quarshie. Actually I think it was more to do with the fact that I am not terribly good at anything else, but I can't really remember, I just loved it.
