She starred in I Am Ruth along with he daughter Mia Threapleton to whom she paid tribute in her speech. “If I could break it in half, I would give the other half to my daughter Mia Threapleton, we did this together, kiddo. To people in power, please criminalise harmful content, we don’t want it… to any young person long person listening please ask for help, It will be there just ask for it.”
