- "Secretly, I'm a real big nerd. I'd rather stay home and play Scrabble than go to a Hollywood party, any day of the week. And I love reading about history and watching the Discovery Channel."

- "I think I'm a part of all the characters I play, definitely at different times in my life. In real life, I'm kind of a tomboy. I like to read a lot I like watching T.V. I don't think I'm as interesting as my characters, but I like doing what I do."

- "You just have to keep choosing work you believe in. Look for the good writing, hopefully the great writing, the fully formed characters. If you're loving what you do, the work will always come."
