Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. There are a number of historical people I admire, but I don't really have a burning desire to meet and talk to a certain one of them. The historical person I would most like to talk to would be an ordinary, everyday person from the 1800's, just to hear first-hand what their life was really like.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I really regret that my mother died right after my daughter was born, and they never had a chance to know each other.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. My utmost fantasy profession, which would entail changing just about everything about me, would be a musical theater star (especially in the thirties and forties.)
