You show your vulnerability through relationships, and those feelings are your soft spot. You need to have a soft spot.
I desperately want a dog, but I've been told I travel too much, and I'm not allowed to have a dog.
In the beginning, people think vulnerability will make you weak, but it does the opposite. It shows you're strong enough to care.
I hate hearing about actors who don't like the show. There are so many actors out there who'd give their right arm for what I'm getting to do.
I think people are just shocked to see me walking around. It's weird. When they see you on TV, they don't expect to see you in a store.
I've been really fortunate to go from series to series to series.
I've been working some really long hours for the last five or six years. Anybody who works on series television knows, and especially women because women spend probably two hours more than the guys with all their hair and makeup crap.
It doesn't help anybody to put out a bad script.
It's all about exploring the more unpredictable aspects in the character, not just fighting people.
In terms of being a role model, I didn't start out to be one. I don't go to work every day with that in mind. But, I do get a lot of fan mail from young girls.
If you watch the show and the characters don't look at each other while they're talking, the actors probably aren't getting along.

I came to acting in a very circuitous way.
I can't say that I've made the transition to movies.
I approach my character with the question: What would an animal think? How would an animal respond? A lot of times, it's quick action and no fear, and sometimes it's irrational fear. You don't always know.
