Brenda Blethyn Success Story
"In retrospect, I suppose the biggest risk I ever took was giving up my good job in order to go to drama school at the age of 27. At the time I didn't regard it as a risk. It was simply something that I had to do, or I would spend the rest of my life wondering. Thinking about it now, I suppose I was more likely to fail than to succeed in this business, but whoever it was who said 'it's better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all' got it right." — Brenda Blethyn
