“Then one day, while I was there visiting her, I got a call from my manager telling me that I had been offered the role of Susie because the casting director had remembered my previous auditions.
Adding: “It’s embarrassing to admit now, but I cried. It was only a one day guest star role but it didn’t matter. It was the bit of light that I needed during that dark time.”
