Personal Quotes (19)

[on her on- and off-screen relationship with Susan Sullivan, who plays Martha Rodgers]: Susan is such a classy lady. She's so different from her character. In real life, she's very intelligent... She's a free thinker. She has a lot of really good advice and she has a really good head on her shoulders. She's seen a lot, she's done a lot, she knows a lot. Her character Martha, to me at least... thinks that she knows everything, but doesn't really know much. Martha was probably brought up in a ritzy home and was a victim of the '60s.
My karate skills are very limited. I'm a green belt.
I really am enjoying my economics class, but I think my favorite course has to be history.
I get very competitive, mostly in acting though. When I'm going out for a role or something, that's when I really get very territorial about things.
Being on set is like being in college, for me, because I get to watch other people perform and I can learn from them if I listen and pay attention.
One thing about me is that I don't like being told I can't do something.
I just love learning about the way people used to live their lives, and I think what also ties into that is psychology, because I like knowing why people do certain things.
I loved doing Supergirl, but I would love to do Batgirl. I would absolutely love to do a live-action Batgirl!
I love, love, love fantasy, like 'Lord of the Rings' and things like that.
I did one pageant in sixth grade, and I loved it! I loved the dresses and the big hair.
When you get a role, you completely lose yourself in it. That's one of the great things about acting - letting yourself go.
If you have the opportunity to watch Nathan Fillion or Jim Carrey do a scene, it's like getting a Ph.D. in acting.
With voice-over, you have to pretend like you're three, except you can talk and read.
I love my dad; I'm a daddy's girl, all the way.
Definitely in voice-over, you have to be completely uninhibited. More than that, you have to put yourself back into the enjoyment of pretending.
I think a lot of times when people play superheroes, they stick with this, 'I am a superhero,' but the truth is that we're all human, and that human quality is really important to bring.
I really want to do a dark character. Not really a bad guy, but someone dark and mysterious. Where everyone says, 'Ooh, it has to be her!' and at the end you find out it isn't. Just someone who looks guilty.
Who doesn't love Veronica Mars?
The Coen Brothers, Peter Jackson, and Guillermo del Toro have really made something of themselves and impacted people. I'd love to work with them sometime, too.
