I have this horrific thing where I'm really bad with names and faces. I have an appalling memory. Someone will come up to me in the street and go, 'Eddie!', and I'll try and give myself time by going into overdrive, 'Hey, hi! Nice to see you!' and start a whole conversation because I can't distinguish between who I know and who I don't.

Sheila Jackson Lee
Getting the role in '300' saved me. I'd been out of work for 11 months after 'The Brothers Grimm.'
