Zoe Wannamaker, the successful English actress talked about her voice hearing on the radio programme “Desert Island Discs” (BBC, Radio 4), she said:
It’s like a little person sitting on your shoulder saying “No that’s wrong. Don’t do this. Don’t do that…
It’s got in the way when I was working, because my concentration would be tripped by this voice in the back of my head. You think you’re concentrating, but the voices were also saying “your not concentrating”.
I know it sounds like Joan of Arc, but it was a sort of chatter that would be going on while I was on stage.
When asked if the voices had gone she said
They come back occasionally and have a good chat.
