(On her role in "The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant")
Pauline Moran: I never said a word as Marlene. The role is a silent one from start to finish and demands a certain type of concentration as well as being very sensitive to the other actresses on stage. It's possible to defocus someone else's performance by shuffling papers too loudly or even making a certain look or move resulting in the audience's turning its attention to yourself. You've got to be very sympathetic to what else is going on.
