Linda Hamilton Quotes

I carry Yeats with me wherever I go. He's my constant companion. I always can find some comfort in Yeats, no matter what the situation is. Months and months and months go by and I know I need to switch to Shelley or somebody else, but right now Yeats is enough for me.

It's the age of information and we need to just get as informed as we can about what other things might help us live healthy lives.

I try to keep a balance. I actually believe that children want normal parents, they don't want celebrities or important parents or anything different from all the other parents.

As a teenager, even as a younger girl, I had some depression, but no one really noticed that it was depression, nor did I know in those days that that's what it was - but I did feel different from other people.

Well, I think it's important to stand as an advocate for the mentally ill.

My journey has been so full of struggle and I just want to be able to offer some help and some general ideas to people that really need it the most.

In her own words ...

In 2010, Linda Hamilton kindly agreed to attend a Question and Answer session at the Beauty and the Beast Convention in San Diego.

In 1988, an Australian heavy metal band, the Bengal Tigers, paid tribute to Catherine Chandler, the character Linda played in Beauty and the Beast

I'm in Love with Catherine Chandler

Every time I see her face
I know that she's the one I love.
And even though Vincent wants her
She's my angel from Above.
Every time I see her lying
All alone in her bedroom,
I feel like I want to touch her
Innocent, her skin so pure.
I'm in love (echo) with Catherine Chandler
I'm in love (echo) with Catherine Chandler
If  I gaze into those eyes
or when I see that loving smile
I know just how Vincent feels
such beauty can not be denied.
Every time I see her crying
All alone and insecure
I feel like I want to hold her
Innocent, her skin so pure.
I'm in love (echo) with Catherine Chandler
I'm in love, I'm in love



Beauty and the Beast TV Series (1987-1991)

Still inspiring fans 25 years later!

Opening  sequence voice over ...

 Vincent: This is where the wealthy and the powerful rule. It is her world, a world apart from mine. Her name is Catherine. From the moment I saw her, she captured my heart with her beauty, her warmth, and her courage. I knew then, as I know now, she would change my life... forever.

Catherine: He comes from a secret place, far below the city streets, hiding his face from strangers, safe from hate and harm. He brought me there to save my life... and now, wherever I go, he is with me, in spirit. For we have a bond stronger than friendship or love. And although we cannot be together, we will never, ever be apart.

This tribute would have been impossible without the help of some very lovely and talented B&B fans.
Angie sends a big thank-you and Vincent hug (I'm sure he wouldn't mind) to Allison, Cindy, Jodie, Judith, Lynn, Peggy, Sobi, Zara ...
and many others who have selflessly shared so much so that we can feed our ... still undiminished ... obsession.

May there never be a time when this isn't so!
