Kimberley Nixon Quotes
Kimberley Nixon: Acting gives me a confidence that I don't have in real life. I get to say things as characters that I'd love to have the nerve to say in real life. You can be sexy or frightened one minute and the next, the director says "cut" and you snap out of it.
Kimberley Nixon: Whether you've got or work, acting is a constant worry so although every actor says it, if I can just keep working and loving it then I think I'm one of the luckiest people in the world.
Kimberley Nixon: I started acting in school plays and dances at 13 or 14 and then I did a drama GCSE and A-Level. I then went straight to the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and would get my acting friends together to star in my boyfriend’s short films because he was studying film studies at the same time.
