Personal Quote:

[on her mother's reaction to her in role of Ophelia in a student production of "Hamlet"] I thought, "Wow". This woman who held me in her womb for nine months--and knows exactly who I am--for a moment something about this world allowed her to suspend her disbelief and believe I was some other person in some other time. I thought, "This is powerful". See more »

Trivia:

Returned to work 3 months after giving birth to her daughter Isabelle to begin filming the 4th season of Scandal (2012). See more »
