Virginia: On her All Saints character Gabrielle) She's who I want to be. She's brave and funny and loyal and caring, and she's not afraid to acknowledge where she comes from or who she is. She's a country girl with attitude who doesn't take anything from anyone, but she can be playful and sexy. Unfortunately she has to be the person who lays down the law occasionally, so she's tough, but has a flair for organisation and an ability to keep anybody in line.
Virginia: (About working with the other members of the All Saints cast) The cast of All Saints contains some of the best actors in the business, and some of the friendliest attitudes around. It is an honour to do so many scenes with John Howard because every moment is like a masterclass. The crew are some of the most patient, cheerful and hilarious people I've ever met, and the producers are so supportive and generous. When I'm not there working I miss the people as well as the job.
Virginia: (On what she loves about being part of the All Saints cast) Every morning, I wake up and think, this can't be happening. I can't actually be going into Channel Seven and be being paid to do the only thing I've ever wanted to do with my life. What have I done Karma-wise to deserve this?
Virginia: (her fondest Christmas memory) My family doesn't really do Christmas, so my memories are seeing snow for the first time when I was tiny, spending a year in England.
Virginia: (on the best Christmas present she's ever received) A yellow wheelbarrow, which I still have. I grow flowers in it now!
