Quotes

...it all the time on the breakdowns (casting notices), it’s like if you are Latino, you have to get naked,” said actress Patricia Rae, who also said, "I studied at the LeeLee Strasberg Theatre Institute, I have done off-Broadway shows. I don’t want to play a cleaning lady.”"
As a CNR student, Anne was an enthusiastic member of Props "N Paint. During her senior year she was a page at ABC, and interned at Children's Television Workshop, working on Sesame Streeet magazine. This was a natural next step into the world of media and communication. She earned her master's degree in Education from Harvard University, and joined her two interests − education and media− by pursuing a career in children's television."
"What a terrible loss for us all. First Robin, who was a genius, and now Lauren. It was my privilege to have known her, to have acted with her, and to have directed her. And, most of all, to have had her as a wise and loving friend. She was an original. Even with those great films we can visit again and again, she will be missed."
"I don't like the category. And to begin with, to me, a legend is something that is not on the Earth, that is dead" she said
