Born: July 31, 1944 in Santa Monica, California, USA
Patricio Castilla (18 August 2006 – present) (1 child)
[on Doctor Zhivago (1965)] Although I went all over the world promoting it, I’d never got to see more than the credits before being whisked away. Finally, at Cannes, I was to sit through the whole thing. When I appeared for the first time, I fainted from the shock – and woke up in the ladies room.
I thought it’d be easy to get into the movies as Charles Chaplin’s daughter. And I suppose it was. Except I wasn’t much good as an actress – really terrible at the beginning.
[on Charles Chaplin] Daddy has never seen anything I’ve done, but he is the best critic I have. He has taught me how to tear down a character. “Slug your guts out” is his philosophy of acting. Never mind the talent, just work hard.
