Going Up for a Header with Steffi Jones

Action Hero Turned Diplomat

Now I’m not a big guy (1m 79 cm in metric, which translates to about 5 feet 10½ inches) but, in my soccer-playing days, I used to fancy my prowess in the penalty box, especially going up for headers on corners. But I’d shy away from any competition with Steffi Jones. Let me tell you: she’s got real presence – and a tough looking left-arm tattoo! And in one of the reports on the show we got a sample of her heading prowess. No surprise, then, about her answer to one of my standard warm-up questions: “What’s your favourite movie?” No hesitation: “Well, it’s got to be action…” Then: Die Hard – the whole series. That fits!
