    “For me it is wonderful to have a coach who is sensitive to my way of working and can help the actor rehearse without making her stale. That way I can do all the director-type stuff and know the child is as well-prepared, better probably, than if I was helping her myself. Miranda is great."

    You set up an environment where people felt compelled (not just comfortable!) to be open and ask questions. It is such a rare and wonderful skill to bring out the best in people, as I saw you do. I know everyone felt so lucky to have worked with you, we all walked away feeling very inspired.
