    Samuel laughed and explained: “I suppose so yes. My mum, as you may know, has got dementia, and I mean, she was always quite forgetful about parts she played.

    “I remember quoting bits of Sybil to her, and she would laugh and say, ‘That’s funny who said that?’ And I say, ‘You did!’

    “Verbatim recall of a character’s speeches, I suppose is the holy grail for any actor, I never achieved it, but she certainly has.

    “That’s quite a thing, I think if you are part of something that has that longevity and still plays so well!”
