  1. Hi Ej, thanks for doing this interview with Joanne. Know it was a few years ago now but was nice to catch up on how she is doing these days. Been a fan, like you, since the 80s (Willow, Navy Seals). Really cool to learn Joanne was around the punk days in the UK. I am a big fan of the Sex Pistols, Killing Joke, etc. Really cool how Joanne went from a plumber family to acting. I always appreciate greatly seeing working class rise up to that level and that shows with her work ethic and not letting the fame stuff get to her. I am surprised she still lives in the states. My mom is English and married an American but stayed in the states once moving here but we always miss the UK. All the best.
