Quotes

I grew up in Manhattan and, since my father was a playwright, all I ever wanted to be was a stage actress.

What I love about a play is that it's such an investment because only time can create a lot of what happens onstage.

All the things that most kids hated, I loved. I loved that things were asked of me and that, much to my surprise, I was able to do them. I loved the 10 o'clock bedtime. I loved the responsibility.

With big, emotional roles it's very easy, especially if you've grown up in the American school of acting, to exploit your own pain. You have to be careful about that, because 9 times out of 10, your pain is not appropriate to the character.

I'm profoundly lucky. I really like it. I really like my work. I've liked it since I was 5 years old.

Really, any sense of spirituality, which I do have, really comes from the arts that are sort of my inspiration.
