The moment on stage or television you treasure most:
The best moment on stage – we were performing in Disney Retunes in 2006 at the Saint James Cavalier when a little kid who had some physical difficulties made all the efforts to come next to me and hug me! It was overwhelming! On TV, I still laugh when I remember the famous BIG BILLY scene in Simpatici! 

The moment on stage or television you wish it never happened:
On stage I do remember a very big accident happening in a production in a particular theatre where some of us including myself, could really get hurt badly. The elevated stage collapsed. I was only 1 metre away from that revolving elevated stage. The show had to be postponed!  On TV? Guess not! Don’t remember dull moments 🙂 

If you weren’t an actor/actress, what would you like to be… and why:
I would have loved to be a pilot. I love travelling, be it for work or pleasure. I love to see other countries as I love to absorb different cultural energies!
