"Being on the set of Casino Royale as a 20 year old was an exciting experience for a young actress. 

Having learnt my lines I spent a great deal of my time each day sitting in Orson Welles trailer with Orson, Peter Sellers and Danni Sheridan (one of the other actresses)  waiting for our call to go on set. Orson and Peter were frequently called to work on set and we continued to wait our turn.  We had been there almost six weeks - sitting around each day wondering when we would be called - when we discovered that Peter and Orson had been changing all the lines around - and had taken our lines too!

As a result I was then given the sequence with David Niven with dialogue - and wearing the red wig!
