My greatest accomplishment is receiving my role on Guiding Light (1952).
[on playing a prostitute in Finding Amanda (2008)] There are things in her that I think everyone can relate to. After I play every character, I always feel a little different. I've experienced something that's not my life. It's never easy. But you want to do these challenging things all the time.
