Personal Quotes (2)

I used to think being a pirate was a really, cool, sexy thing. It's not. It's terrifying. It's a really horrifying, filthy, scary world where people died from simple things. When a cannon goes off, the splinter from the wood gets in their eyes and they get an infection. Or they don't have enough to eat. Or they get scurvy. It's a terrifying way to survive.
[on her role in Black Sails (2014)] I'm not technically on the pirate ships. I do a lot of wheeling and dealing from the brothel. But I'm not in the brothel all the time, either. I'm around and about. But I have this fantasy that I'm going to turn into this really badass pirate, living on the ship and killing really smarmy men.
