#Quote
1 Where you come from is such a huge part of who you are today.
2 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.
3 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.'
4 I think it's fun to play with worlds that you can add a lot of your own imagination to. With True Blood (2008), you're not limited by anything, there are just leaps and bounds of the imagination you can take with these characters.
5 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.
6 I was shy and a hard worker, so acting was a way to focus whatever nervous energy I was experiencing onto a goal.
7 I've never been a much of a glamor girl.
8 It's interesting to take a look at people who deal with prejudice on a daily basis - it's been a real eye opener for me.
9 My skin is pretty low-maintenance, but I'm a big sunscreen wearer, which I think is the big thing when it comes to wrinkles, right?
10 Things that are unknown attract us.
11 I always fancied someone might call me "Red", like Katharine Hepburn.
12 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.
13 I don't see myself going back to blonde outside of work though. I really like the red.
14 I think a lot of drama, nowadays, is character-based and development-based, but True Blood (2008) is very plot-oriented.
15 I think it's fascinating that there's a whole holiday dedicated to things that we fear and that's so interesting about the nature of humanity.
