Margolyes Regrets 'Coming Out' To Her Mother
Actress MIRIAM MARGOLYES regrets revealing her sexuality to her mother, because she's convinced the shock caused her to suffer a stroke just days later.
The Harry Potter star, 67, has been open about her sexuality since 'coming out' in her twenties, but she wishes she could go back and change history - because her decision to speak out about her sexuality caused her mum, Ruth, a lot of anguish.
Margolyes says, "It caused the person I loved most in the world a pain she could not bear and I have to take the responsibility for that.
"I should have been aware that that was something I could not say, and I really do regret it."
