Get to know me - [1/10] People I admire → Stevie Nicks
"My Mom would always say to me, ‘You better be the president of your company, or the lead singer of your band, or the boss, because you don’t like to be told what to do.”
Barbara Stanwyck, age 75, in The Thorn Birds (1983)
Because she was the same age as the character, and what the character has to say is so… well, you could have dropped a feather on that set. We all had very wet eyes. You could see the actress responding to the moment on the set as well as the moment in the picture. It was just incredible.
When we shot the scene, it was very moving. I knew I had to get the close-ups carefully, because she’s experienced enough to hold back for them. We did it in two takes, and she came up even higher in the second. After the first one, people had tears in their eyes. She swung the bedroom doors closed, and there was a long silence and then applause. But she did not appear. So I went in and opened the doors and closed them behind me. She was standing there shaking, just shaking. I remember holding her, giving her a big hug and, as I’ve said, one held a fully sensual woman. It was a very beautiful, touching moment.

I didn’t know who the hell I was. I was whoever they wanted me to be.
