As a fair skinned blonde, I disappeared into the background. I've always been a loner, so I suppose dyeing my hair red was a way to say, 'I'm here, I exist, I'm a human being and you can't just push me aside.'
I think that part of the difficulty of being a celebrity is that you may have to hide what you're feeling and you aren't totally allowed to be yourself, because you're in the public eye.
Things that are unknown attract us.
Where you come from is such a huge part of who you are today.
I definitely like a little bit of darkness, a little edge. I get a little bored when things are maybe too simple or too... expected.

I've never been a much of a glamour girl.

I always fancied someone might call me 'Red,' like Katherine Hepburn.
I don't see myself going back to blonde outside of work though. I really like the red.
I think a lot of drama, nowadays, is character-based and development-based, but 'True Blood' is very plot-oriented.
Acting is somewhat mysteriously taught. There are so many different methods and systems and processes for teaching acting because it will always be an elusive art-form.
