3According to Laura Waskin's in-depth article of Virginia in Classic Images film magazine, February 2013, after the filming of Born Free (1966), the real Joy Adamson invited Virginia to go with her and camp to Meru, the location where the story was based. She also presented Virginia and Bill with a painting she'd done of Elsa the lion on a camp bed accompanied by a touching personal message that read, "I thought the film and the way the story was told, brought the message to a wider audience. Books do one thing, and films do something else".
4Due to family obligations, she once had to turn down the title role in a stage production of "Peter Pan" that would have co-starred husband Bill Travers as Captain Hook. Virginia later played Mrs. Darling in an American TV series version of Peter Pan (1976) starring Mia Farrow and Danny Kaye.

6Virginia and Bill were asked to reprise their "Born Free" roles as the Adamsons in the sequel Living Free (1972) but they declined. Susan Hampshire and Nigel Davenport assumed the roles. The subsequent reviews and box office receipts for the sequel were underwhelming.

1[on Denholm Elliott] He was a fine actor and a delightful person, but I suppose I have to admit that, for both of us, our marriage was a mistake. I knew in my heart it wouldn't work. So I had to leave.
2[I have no favorite] wild animals. They are all equally fascinating. And to be respected. I don't believe in domination.
3We saw the results of the film's influence at the time, which is as strong today as it ever was. It doesn't go out of fashion. -- VM, regarding her most popular film Born Free (1966).
4[on Peter Finch] Everybody adored Peter so much that he would just come on to the set and everyone would start smiling.
5"There are some roles you can put out of your mind the moment you get home. But not this one. (Violette Szabo in Carve Her Name with Pride (1958)) It's the part of a life time.
