Sandra Bernhard ready to take on NT


Niagara Gazette — “I’m always in the middle of it, I’m not the type of person that ponders where I have come from, I always have to move forward. What is life and where do things sort of drop off? I think it’s partially in your control and partially out of your control, but for the things that are in my control I am vibrant and moving. I just keep meeting new people and finding life to be totally fascinating, and I am so glad to be in the thick of it.”

Most writers can’t help but to note that Bernhard’s appearance hasn’t changed much over the years.

“I work really hard at staying in shape, I am a road warrior, I carry my own stuff and hoist my own bags. It’s not for vanity, it’s just for my own health. Even when you go on the road for a couple of weeks it’s just brutal, and I’m not Beyonce, I don’t have twenty people carrying all my stuff for me.”

While her appearance hasn’t changed much since she played an openly gay character on television, attitudes towards homosexuality have evolved considerably.

“In my (fourteen-year old) daughter’s generation, kids are gay in high school already. When I was in high school, you wouldn’t say you were gay, people might know you were gay but you didn’t label it because it wasn’t in the sensibility. Now it’s a ‘whatever, he’s gay,’ and it’s such a toss away it’s great.”
