Personal Quote:

[on her role as "Pam" on True Blood (2008)] I don't know if it's a bad sign or if I'm becoming delusional, but I don't know if she's good or evil. She's definitely correct. I feel like what she says we're all thinking: you know, she only kills bad people. I feel like she's a little bit of the person we all wish we could be, but wouldn't be able to maintain jobs and friends. See more »


Originally read for the role of "Wonder Woman" on Justice League (2001), but was declined in favor of Susan Eisenberg. However, Bruce W. Timm remembered her and later cast her as "Queen Mera", the wife of Aquaman, for the episode "The Enemy Below". See more »
