"What happened to me when I started to read plays was quite profound. I think it was the first time that my brain understood how to view the world. In other words, I started to think in a completely different way. My particular intelligence was stimulated through reading plays."
"I love it when a director provides me almost a shadow, so I know that somebody is there with me. I'm like Peter Pan with the shadow sewn on. I'm not scared to go where I have to go - into these strange places and possibly fall into these holes and make mistakes - as long as the director is there with me. I don't like feeling alone."
"I can't wait to see what other actors are going to do. I can't wait to be affected by them and to feel what they're going to make me feel."
"I'm interested in how we've been seperated from our spirituality as women, which is a place of power for the feminine."
"That's what we're always hoping for in our work.You're like - oh well, maybe if I do this part, maybe I can save some grant this year on therapy."
"Actors spend their lives searching for worlds they can enter, searching for stories that require their particular talents, their ideas, their idiosyncrasies. We search for involvement in stories that contain relevance to our world, because built deeply into the core impulses of the actor is a strong, almost overwhelming need to connect with the people."
"Whatever happens between Adama & Roslin happens in spite of her ideas and thoughts about what shouldn't happen."
"I think Roslin is on the cutting edge of female characters who are learning how to handle power."
"I can only speak from her point of view and I sense that the level of emotional vulnerability an actual relationship would require, would seem to threaten perhaps Roslin's stability. Her commitment is to the fleet...and her lack of emotional confusion has, I believe, been one of her strengths. I doubt it would be easy for her to surrender her heart at this point."
