“There were lots of things in my mother’s temperament I didn’t take to - don’t forget that in looks and personality, she had it all. I was gawky and spotty and “impossible” in the way girls of seventeen are, unless they happen to be Vivien Leigh. She made up for having relatively few friends when she was younger and now had dozens, and was passionately possessive of them. She never wanted to risk letting people go. Love was the most important thing to her.”
— Suzanne Leigh Holman on her mother, Vivien Leigh.
