Lowlight: Doing a Lean Cuisine commercial. The director saw the ad as a vehicle to launch Carroll as a comedian. The Lean Cuisine representative didn’t. Highlight: Taking the role of Isabella in Measure for Measure for the Bell Shakespeare Company. Big break: Being cast in Shout! the musical by Richard Wherrett ( who died in 2001). Bad habit: How long have you got? Favourite actor: Is it cheesy if I say my father, Peter? Favourite stage writers: Stephen Sondheim and William Shakespeare.
