1. How did you got involved into the Dr. Quinn series?
I auditionned for it. Fortunately for me, they were in a hurry and I didnít even
have a call back. I think I found out the next day that I got the part.
2. What was it like to work on Dr. Quinn?
It was a dream come true. When I was a child I used to play cowboys with my
sister. But I always played the boy and she always wore the dress. Maybe there
is a connection? You never know. We spent hours and hours in our bedroom
playing this gane together. I've always wanted to be in a western. I got very lucky.
3. Which DQ episode was your favorite to do?
The little brown jug was tremendous fun to play. I do love comedy. And any time
I could show tenderness. Either to Hank or horace. I just enjoyed the romance of it.
4. What did you like most about your role as Myra, and what did you dislike?
I loved that she meant well in everything thast she did, and that she survived
tremndous difficulty and stuck up for herself with out getting hardend or
losing her heart. She was a much better human being than I could ever be.
Always making difficult decisions. Courageous. I learned a lot from her.
5. Did you liked to be Horaceís wife?
I loved being Horaces wife. There was so much room for tenderness and comedy
there. I got a little spoiled!
6. Most of your scenes on Dr. Quinn were with William Shockley (Hank)
and Frank Collison (Horace). What was it like to work with them?
Hank and Myra were deeply connected so there was an intensity there that was
very compelling for both of us. Frank Made Myra lighthearted. It was almost like
two very different phases of her life. Both phases were tremndously enjoyable in
7. With which actor(s) did you get along the best?
William and I were great friends on and off the set, becuase we had a lot in common
at the time , but in retrospect the whole cast was lovely. I always held a little flame
for Chad Allen. But when I see any cast member now, I feel tremendous love for them
all. Such a great group of truly lovely people. Beth Sullivan knew instinctively that
she only wanted good people on her set. And that , I think, is exactly what she got.
8. Was it easy to play Myra, or do you have a very different character?
It was easy to play Myra because she was the side of me I wish I could show if the real
world was not so dangerous. She was easy to play. And easy to love. She was who I
wished I could be. Yes, my character in real life is a little more jaded, and careful,
and skeptical and cautious. But Myra and I still share the same laugh, and childish curiosity about things. Most certainly.
9. What was your reaction when you found out that Horace and Myra divorced?
I was devastated of course. It felt like a little death. But we alll survive our little deaths
and grow into better human beings in the end . I'm not sure that could have been avoided.
10. Was it hard to leave Dr.Quinn?
It was heartbreaking and hard at the time. Yes, terribly.
11. Now that you've played on Dr. Quinn, do people often recognize you?
No....People in Los Anglees rarely recognize me.
12. Are you still in contact with some of the DQ actors? If so, with whom?
I do bump into Henry from time to time and catchup. And I do also love to see
William, maybe once a year. It's always like old times.
13. How do like to spend your free time?
I like moving essentially. Usually acrobatics or parcours. Iím a clown so I freallylove clowning around ( whatver that may mean), my life is full of fun and
colour becuase of this. I am very grateful.
14. Are their any projects, movies, etc. you are currently working one?
If so, can you tell us something about it?
I was stilt wlaking in a music video called "I like girls" I think it will be released shortly
and available on youtube or.... and I just finished a short film called "tumbler" about
a pair of circus clowns that has already been accepted into a film festival here , that
I can tell you more about in a few weeks or so. And I am about to begin shooting
another sort fim called "vestiges' in which I play a mother in a family conflict in
which the father choses to kill everyone by the end. It's very intense and a total contrast to what I have been doing previously. I focus on projects that amuse me, or speak to me, and feel that once again, they will lead me to a gem project, like doctor quinn. I prefer to continue to do things close to my heart without too much
comoromise if I can help it.
What is your favourite:
- TV show: House Hunters
- Movie: Les Siserables
- Food: Peas, forzen yogourt, nothing like a great fresh salad, and tea.
- Colour: Red. It's so bold!
- Music: Chopin is one of my favorite composers, but I love Bach as a contrast.
Some country music breaks my heart and I love to be moved that way.
Blues, Rockabily, Jazz. radiohead. Dubstep and recently a band called Beats Antique.
- Actor: Oh my goodness. This year it might be Hugh Jackman or the young guy in
Les Mis. Next year who knows. At one time it was Sean Penn. But I've outgrown that
phase. He seems a little mean to me now.
- Hobby: Pinting is a hobby but I never seme to get to it, because Iím to busy
moving around. Parcours is an obsession outside of acrobatics.
- Season: Every season is glorius and I love them all.
