At 17, she shunned a law and psychology programme to move to Los Angeles in pursuit of acting. She auditioned five times for the soap Days Of Our Lives and was not given any part — thereby making her eternally indebted to the show’s casting directors.

Her next films include CBGB, about the New York punk scene, and Butter, which isn’t a saucy homage to Last Tango in Paris but a film about a lard-carving contest in Iowa.
