Susan: (On her character Maggie in 'Casualty') I think Maggie's fantastic, I wish could be more like her! I just couldn't stand up to the likes of Nathan the way she does,she's got such good morals and is never afraid to say what she thinks.
Susan: I have to say I do have a bit of a morbid fascination, I kinda see the body as a machine and certain aspects of it I actually find quite fascinating.
Susan: (On her urge to act in theatre) You sit there thinking, 'I could do that, I could learn a few words and walk about'.
