- “To go from Girl, Interrupted (1999), where I had to cry every day, to a TV show like ‘The West Wing’ (1999), where I get to Laugh and Joke around every day, has been a welcome relief.”
- “I think my guideline has been to find things that inspire me. And as long as I stick to that, I don’t think I’ll have any problems crossing over to becoming an adult actress.
- “There’s nothing like getting yourself into character and seeing a different person. It really wears on your vanity.”
- “It’s a great dynamic. The dynamic between men and women in the workplace is really interesting.”
- The great thing about Pete and Peggy’s storyline is that you barely have to do anything. There’s so much there, so much history, that you can have them exchange a look and it’s so loaded. So you honestly don’t have to do anything.
- “I think one of my biggest influences is Bette Davis. I’ve seen almost each of her films, and she’s been very inspiring to me.”
