• In the biopic Billy: The Early Years, the actress, 59, plays the dynamic evangelist's mom.

WHAT DREW YOU TO THE FILM?
I always admired Billy for his integrity and lack of divisiveness in expressing his beliefs.

STILL FEEL THE PRESSURE OF BEING THE BIONIC WOMAN?
No. I was working hard to make Bionic Woman about internal power, not external power. It's part of my life.

AND NOW YOU RUN SELF-HELP WORKSHOPS.
Why not? I wanted to be a psychologist, but I was dyslexic and couldn't get through college. I'm into the experience of a shift in perspective.
