“It is such a blessing that she is in my life. Such a blessing to have someone in my life who is such a beautiful soul”
“She is very, very special to me. You just have to see my Facebook of last year to realise how special she is to me. There is no one like her.”
“You get to claim her because she is from here. But she is the queen of the world – the whole world will get to claim her.”
“Her commitment (to xXx 3 character Serena) was apparent from the beginning.She made us feel like she would go to all lengths to personify this daredevil character. It wasn’t just beauty and grace but ability to commit to action.”
