I'm not a big fan of mediocre.
I was always the child who wore her emotions on her sleeve.
I love it when ugliness is beautiful. I love character flaws.
Until people get to know me they think I'm a dark, sensuous bitch.
In theater, you have a rehearsal period and you know just who to be.
In the theater, it's about taking time in a musical segment, a pause in a musical way and then moving on.
I'm just a pack mule. I've played leads and I've played character roles. Any actress in Hollywood will tell you as your age climbs, the leads thin.
Having a dad in the service was helpful. I was forever meeting new kids, going to new schools, moving to new neighborhoods. I was encouraged when I attended the American School in Germany.
All those days of waiting on tables until I could get a role on Broadway, all that time going to school taking lessons, and all those years of being a nobody following a dream-and now here it is.
I think in terms of family, in terms of relationships, in terms of work, competition to be the favorite, to be the noticed, to be the one - I don't know if it exists for all personalities, but I know for sure it did with me.
