The Making of Bread & Roses

Television (Full Length) – 1993

...very often when you're playing a role they (audiences) love to see the vulnerability of characters. But with Sonja her vulnerability's not something that you saw very obviously in her face. She's quite a contained woman, and your face is what you use most on camera to tell people how you're feeling ... to tell that story of being hurt, being vulnerable, yet at the same time appearing not to be. It's a bit tricky to try and get that across.
– Actor Geneviève Picot, on playing Sonja Davies
The biggest nightmare is staying on budget and keeping everybody happy at the same time. Because they are all doing their very best to do their jobs well. Most of them don't have quite enough money, particularly in a period piece like this, which is much more expensive than working on a contemporary project.
– Producer Robin Laing
