Personal Quote:

[on portraying Melisandre in 'Game of Thrones'] Playing evil is just not interesting. I don't think anyone who does evil stuff thinks they're doing evil stuff. That's the scary part. The people who do things we despise or don't understand - they think they're doing a good thing, which is so scary. I think that is the only way for me to play her, because otherwise I'm fighting with her. See more »

Trivia:

Played the character of Gretchen Ferris in Ridley Scott's Body of Lies (2008), but all her scenes were deleted in the final cut. See more »

Star Sign:

Virgo
