They could've hired someone with a bigger name and banked on that for Revenge (2011). They took a chance on me, and it's brought on a whole new collection of opportunities.
It should be illegal for people to stalk you with cameras. It's really invasive. How do you enjoy a moment? I see how people spiral out of control.
I wouldn't have labeled myself a girl-next-door. I just think I had the look to play those characters. I was a good kid, but I definitely had my moments of rebellion.
I felt like I was stuck in a rut playing the same thing. I promised myself after leaving Brothers & Sisters (2006) that I would only do something that made me happy, that excited me, that was different. I wasn't going to compromise my creative integrity just for money, or to stay relevant.
