After I finished 'E.R.', I wanted to concentrate on re-examining what kind of actress I am and taking time for real-life things.
One thing I like about trying to write is that I can possibly write myself a role. Otherwise, you're at the mercy of whatever roles are out there that people are willing to give to you.

Before I could talk, I would try to sing.
Being raised Catholic myself, I think people who are Catholic tend to carry a lot of guilt. It's almost a joke.
I think everyone feels lost at times during their high school years.
