It's often women who are writing leading roles for women. Most of the stuff that comes my way is not actually about women. I'm just asked to be a supporting player in a story about a man, and I, frankly, was not interested in doing that.
Why do we insist women are cast 10 years younger than the role they're playing? Men don't know what a 30-year-old is supposed to look like because on TV she's always 20.
I'm a middle child, and I'm pretty diplomatic: the peace-maker.
What's great about good writing is that it feels like life, so it's not hard to relate to her circumstances.
I played a lot of moms. You're always too young when you're playing moms. My first kid when I started playing moms was about six months old. And then a month later I was doing another commercial audition and my kid was two, and then about eight months later my kid was 11.
I'm a big reader, so I tend to already know the books when they're adapted into something.
I have this idea of myself as this quiet, observant, thoughtful child, which my parents roundly contradict. They claim that I was loud and bossy and dancing all the time.
I certainly enjoyed having my sister, because when she came I felt a certain responsibility to help her fit in, and help her learn English. I wanted her to play with all my toys. I was actually, I think, really scary to her, because I had so much energy.
