Green is one of my favorite colors - emerald green.
I am glad and thankful that my husband forced me to start reading for pleasure, as it took me years to listen to him and pick up a book!
I can be very ordinary looking.
I like surprising my audiences, and it's compulsory to have fun and be silly; I never take myself quite too seriously.
I pride myself on not being run of the mill. I don't want to be your umpteenth Fantine in 'Les Miz.'
I'd been brought up on musicals. Instead of cartoons, we watched videocassettes of musicals at home.
Living in New York for 10 months was incredible; it was everything I thought it was going to be and more.
Sting is a father figure to us all.
We used to have front-row seats for the Grand Opera House pantomime every year, and once the dame May McFettridge got me up on-stage.
'We Will Rock You' is one of my favorite shows. I first saw it when I was a student at the Royal Academy and loved it.
When my dad, Tommy Tucker Kelly, was about six, he started out with his dad on 'The Black and White Minstrel' Shows.
All you would hear every night on the news was that somebody had been shot dead in a certain part of Belfast. We lived opposite a judge, and there were always soldiers crouched down in our garden. We'd sit and talk to them, and I even used to sing to them!
I did a reality TV show in London called 'I'd Do Anything,' and when I got put in the program, they said, 'What is your ultimate dream?' and I said, 'Broadway.'
I read books for exams at school, but only because I had to read them, and really didn't enjoy it one little bit! The only time I did enjoy it was when I was asked to read out loud in front of the class, as I then used it as an acting exercise!
I started singing in pubs and clubs around Belfast when I was 10. My dad is a musician, and he took me 'round; I impersonated Tina Turner and Shirley Bassey, and the crowd couldn't believe what was coming out of this little girl.
