Emotional ties to Arabella Weir

The actress and writer rebellious Reading, sentimental scents and what It has in common with Obama

Arabella Weir

Archie, my 19 year old son, is a very exuberant person. When he was one and a half years old and had a tantrum, someone said, "I think you have an Italian footballer here." He painted this picture when he was five years old – it is so impressive who he is.

We lived in Cairo, where my father [the late Sir Michael Weir] was stationed in the British embassy. My mother Alison was very unconventional, so she was the last person to take such a shot. It is moving to me because it shows what she tried but could not be.

This mother's day box was made for me by my daughter Isabella [21] at the age of seven - it is in my office. It is contemplative and hardworking. I am happy to say that she has no interest whatsoever in becoming a performer like me.

My best friend Helen [Scott Lidgett] died in 2012 before her grandson Arthur was born. I said I was grandmother to him. His parents got this Le Labo Vetiver 46 to thank me for the care. My name is "SG" – "surrogate mother".

I bought this portrait of Obama from my friend Nicola Green [married to MP David Lammy]. He only walks in this setting, but his pose looks exactly like that of John Wayne in the True grit Poster. Obama also has a copy, so he and I have the same picture.

When I got really drunk for the first time, I was living with a friend in her older sister's house in Provence. I was 15 and lay there all day thinking I was going to die when her sister's husband brought me water in this duck pitcher. I kept it as a souvenir of my first hangover.

My grandma was the most wonderful, unconditionally loving Christian. She always said, "If I go, you will have it." It was a huge ruby ​​surrounded by diamonds. I couldn't take it with me, so I had the jeweler Daphne Krinos reset it – now I wear it every day.

My mother was an English teacher. One of their broad statements was that I was an idiot because I never read. I rebelled by reading in secret, but George Eliots blew me away middle Ages that I couldn't pretend I wasn't reading anymore.
