I’ve spent my entire life wanting to live inside books. I became an actress so that I could escape into the stories and worlds that I loved. I wanted to be the characters, really inhabit them, and feel how they felt, think their thoughts along with them. Michelle Langstone, on blog Island Drafts, December 2010
