"I remember when we filmed a lot of the dance sequences, particularly the big final one; that was my first day on set, my first film, and my first time dancing with a professional dancer, Paul Mercurio. So I was absolutely terrified and in many of the sequences all I can remember seeing is Paul's face" (Interview at "Strictly Ballroom" - DVD)
