I have an action figure, and so do my parents, so it’s odd that we all have these dolls of ourselves. It’s a little bit surreal but kind of fun. You can play with the whole family.
I like working in both movies and television. Television is faster, not very much rehearsal and a lot of material is shot in a day. Big budget movies are luxurious in terms of the schedule. Independent films often shoot fast as well.
I loved dancing. I still use my dance background in the different physicality’s of each character I work on. Once I started studying acting, I was energized and excited by the verbal exchange, having a conceptual communication of what was being expressed. As a dancer, I was technically very proficient. But for me, dancing was always about expressing something more. With acting you add the component of language to the above.
I’ve been really fortunate in the fact that I’ve gotten a chance to do a real wide range of all different kinds of characters. Drusilla is amazing, and is such a rich character, and then to go from that and work on a New York Italian character, to get that diversity of roles. That’s what makes me tick. I love that I’ve gotten a chance to do a lot of that.
I’ve always wanted to do a period movie, to do something the turn of the century and I’m really fascinated by that whole time period. It’s been really so interesting through Buffy to get to visit some of that. Although I can say that corsets aren’t really very comfortable.
