Personal Quote:

[on playing Nora Walker] The first thing older mothers say when they meet me is just how much they enjoy the show. The women my age who watch it love it because the show is about them. It's about being the mother of grown-ups. They don't really get to tune into anything else on TV, or see films they can relate to, so it's great to see their lives portrayed on Brothers & Sisters (2006). See more »
