Simple. Pared down. Timeless. The ties were never too thick or too thin; the pants were never too flared or too skinny.

I thought I was clever by greeting casting agents in my Australian accent and then switching to an American one during the performance. But the Australian accent seemed to put them off.

In England, rain was thin and cold, and made you hunch up inside your coat, walking home from the bus stop. In Jamaica, it was wide and thick and invited you to step into it, and see how wet you could get, and be thrilled that it was warmer than the sea and warmer than your skin; it was abandon.
My biggest advice for girls - and this is something that I wish I could have known when I was younger - is to have thick skin.
