Personal Quote:

[in a 1987 interview] Most of the parts I've played have been passive girls who are just sort of there. I have trouble with that because I'm not like that and being passive gets you in big trouble personally. It's not the kind of quality that young girls should be looking up to. See more »

Trivia:

Caught the acting bug after winning the role of Dorothy Gale in a school production of "The Wizard of Oz" - according to herself appearing on "The Jeff Probst Show". See more »
