Susan Hampshire's quotes

  • 'Colour TV was incredible. You would turn it on just to look at a tree. It was so exciting to see it not in black and white.' - recalling the 1970s.
  • I can't think it's satisfying for a woman to be a ballbreaker, and it must be dreadful for the man.
  • I went to do a fete the other day and all the under tens called me Molly [from Monarch of the Glen (2000)]. And sometimes children call me 'Susan Hamster' which I love - it's so sweet isn't it? - 2004
  • A common misperception of me is that I am privileged. If you speak with an accent like mine, people tend to think that you never had to work for living.
  • I had a tiny lump taken out of my breast in my early 40s; it wasn't malignant, but it's always good to check - both my parents died comparatively young of cancer.
  • In women the menopause tends to bring out irritability, whereas with men it's often expressed in the need to find another partner so they can still feel like Tarzan.
  • I'm not computer literate. I don't want to know anything about emails. I can just about cope with a mobile phone.
  • [on learning French in a week for Paris in August (1966)]: I think dyslexics have a natural aptitude for languages.
  • [on growing up with Dyslexia]: Everyone was very kind to me. I was never teased because I couldn't read. Dyslexia drove me to tears, but they were tears of frustration, not because anyone tormented me.
  • Funnily enough I never have trouble reading my own writing. All the books I have written have been in longhand on a yellow legal pad which is much easier for me to decipher than words on a white background.
  • My scripts get damp, wet, curled up, because sometimes I learn them lying in the bath. Sometimes I might be sitting on the lid of the lavatory seat.
