Rachel Roberts Quotes:

Brenda: I believe you, thousands wouldn't.


Brenda: What do you think having a kid means? You're doped up and sick for 9 months, your clothes don't fit, nobody will look at you. One day you're yelling out and you've got a kid. That's not so bad but you've got to look after it for the rest of its life. You want to try it sometime.
Arthur Seaton: Well if that's how you feel.
Brenda: How do you expect me to feel.


Brenda: Having a good time?
Arthur Seaton: Not bad, I'm with some pals from work, had to come out or I'd go crackers, I've been worrying about you all week.
Brenda: Well you can stop worrying.
Arthur Seaton: Is it all right then, did you see that doctor?
Arthur Seaton: Oh yeah, I went, I didn't stay.
Arthur Seaton: What?
Brenda: I've decided to have it and face whatever comes of it.

Rachel Roberts Facts
Became the first Welsh actress to win a BAFTA (British version of the "Oscar") for "Best British Actress" for her sterling performance in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960).

Actual suicide was a result of swallowing lye, alkali, or another unidentified caustic substance on top of the barbiturates which were ingested as detailed in her posthumously published journals. The acidic effect of the poisonous agent was an immediate cause of death which propelled her body through a decorative glass screen. She was found by her gardener cut to ribbons in a negligee on her kitchen floor amongst the shards of glass on November 26, 1980.

Making her debut as Ceres in Twelfth Night with Sir Michael Redgrave in 1951, she performed at the Old Vic Company in 1954 and 1955 with Shakespearean roles in Macbeth, Love's Labour's Lost, Othello and Henry V.
