" It was like shooting 'The Ten Commandments'."

" I love baddies. So I called Ross. He told me to come over and see Boris (Sagal-director), it was six weeks before I got the call!"

" Hollywood has a short memory.. When I moved back to London in 1970, my career was going strong. But essentially it has been a matter of having to start all over again. Until Ross came back with the offer of playing Avril, all I was being offered was schlock. I was not too worried about the nude scene as I have done them in some of my European films. It's simply part of the new morality, that one cant have hangups about one's body any longer!"

" It was a challenge! Most directors won't direct me. That is what happens when you have been a so-called big name for so long. I think Boris was a little apprehensive about working with me. We talked it all out, as this was a tough role and I wanted direction. He told me not to worry.. He directs everyone on the set."

|AVRIL ENTERTAINS ROSCOE!|
" I ran into my old friend Ross Hunter one day and he told me he was producing the series and would I like to be in it! In a moment of madness, I agreed! It was a nice part.. Not too big and I greatly admire Christopher Plummer, whom I play opposite."
It would be 1981 before she stepped in front of the camera again, with a guest spot on "Murder She Wrote" in 1988 being her swan-song.
"The Moneychangers", is one of those typically 70's tv productions, that sadly could not be made anymore,apart from the expense, there are few big stars left to fill such a production. Hopefully it will get a DVD release at some stage...
