Personal Quote:

[She was asked in a May 6, 2003 interview by Fred Topel how she developed the "Willow voice"] I sort of got her voice when I was auditioning. I was sitting in the parking lot looking at the material, and I didn't have it, I didn't have it. Then there was one particular line which, from there on, I was like, "Okay, I know how I want to play this character." See more »

Trivia:

She is in London starring in the West End stage adaptation of Nora Ephron's When Harry Met Sally... (1989) , co-starring Luke Perry, which will run in the springtime. Afterwards, she is tentatively set to begin production on her new CBS television series. See more »
