I had a soap opera, and my next job was working with Kyle McLachlan on The Invisible Man.
I got out of college in 1997, and TV embraced me very quickly.
What made me fall in love with acting, which is my life, was watching other people perform. It made me hunger to do that.
I try to watch the show every week and improve upon myself. I’ve become a fan.
I needed to move, but I haven’t had the time to find a place to go.
Dick Wolf was my first boss after coming out of Sarah Lawrence.
That difficult place to put your finger on about the world – it needs to be illustrated.
Life came in and put me in front of the camera before I could really make a decision, but I think I probably would have gravitated to film.
It’s really nice to pass the ball when you’re in an ensemble cast.
It would probably break my heart to hear that people didn’t like me. I don’t look on the Internet.
I’ve grown up so much here. It’s been two years. I’ve become a woman here, I’ve become an actress here.
I’m a great fan of Carey Lowell’s and I loved Jill Hennessey.
I would love for TNT to run the whole season at one point. I don’t think that’ll ever happen, though.
I’ve grown as a person. The dynamics on this set are very demanding because we work a lot of hours, it’s very sad material, so there’s always someone upset because it’s really heavy stuff.
I was very excited about the idea that I could be an idealist, that I could be my age, the eager beaver who had hope in the justice system and the one who gets disappointed just like the audience.
