If she's an 'awful actor', she's had a very illustrious career - including a BAFTA award!
But she certainly has a distinctive style which may not be to everyone's taste.

What amuses me is when two contestants have got through Round two and then say 'don't go for the higher offer, we need you back here'. No they don't - it will reduce their share should they finally...
