Describe your perfect day
To wake up and it be sunny, bright and nice outside, to be able to meet with friends or family to eat fish at the sea and then go to the theatre for rehearsal or performance!

Best book ever read?
The Schopenhauer Cure by Irvin Yalom. For the last eight years or so I have been reading novels that have to do with real heroes and problems of a psychiatric nature solved by individuals!

Best childhood memory?
At Perros Guirec in France. My father had been working for a period in France and we went to visit him and stay all summer with my Mom, brother and grandparents. I was six years old. The colours, the feelings from that trip will remain forever etched in my memory!

Jazz / soul, artful songs and a lot of theatrical performances.

My family! I am lucky to have them and grew up with these people and even more fortunate that the new family I found is also valuable and loving.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
‘Oh, captain my captain’ from Dead Poets Society! It is the inspiration that a person gives you to become something in this world.

Maybe in the time of Christ in Jerusalem and to see chiefly.

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
In the 30s in Rome and America, but then go back and write a lot of books.

What is your greatest fear?
I still cannot think about losing any of my beloved people, fear of the fire.

To live, to love, without any be stressed and not be sad, everything comes in time.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
Eyes need to talk, when there are a lot of questions and restrictions you understand that it will not go very far.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would gather my loved ones in one place and we would party with music, food, drink, laughter and prayer because in the end in life if you didn’t leave your mark in 24 hours you can’t do much.
