Starry Constellation Magazine
Lisa SteinbergMarch 7, 2007

Q. What are some of the recent projects that you've been working on?

A. Iíve had some time off this hiatus and itsí been really nice to just rest, but I plan to be a part of two films later in the year.

Q. The fourth season of "The L Word" began in January. What can you tell us is new this season with your character and the show?

A. Well, the season is almost over, so I think people have a good idea whatís going on. I think she is the most vulnerable this year and that rough exterior is starting to crack. Thatís not to say all her walls are going to come crashing down, far from it.

Q. What is it about your role as Shane that continues to challenge you as an actress?

A. Iím always curious to see where she goes from season to season. We all get a broad stroke of where our characters are going at the beginning of each season. The fun part is adding the color and detail. I think Shane is slowly growing up but still making mistakes along the way. I enjoy her flaws and discomfort because to me, thatís human nature.

Q. What do you think it is about the show that continues to draw so many viewers in?

A. Well, considering its the only show about lesbians; that peaks the curiosity factor alone. But I would like to think that after that initial titillation factor has passed; people stay involved because of these strong complex characters. They all go through the gamut of everyday Emotions, whether it pertains to themselves or their relationships. Thatís not to say its a little off the wall, but its entertainment. Itís the kind of show where you can yell at your TV or laugh or maybe sometimes cry.

Q. Did you think a lot of fans would be wary of season four because they were so unhappy over Dana's death?

A. Oh, for sure. How could they not. We felt the same way walking into season 4. There wasnít a day we didnít mention Erin and how much we missed her.

Q. Do you think the show dealt with the way Dana had her cancer in a real way or do you think it was too short a period?

A. Iíve gone off the handle on this topic already. But yes, it was way too short for my taste.

Q. Your character has gone through such a vast range of emotions throughout the four seasons. Where do you draw your experiences from for your portrayals?

A. It really depends on each situation. Most of the time, a lot of her baggage reflects things in my life in some form or another. I just try to grab things from my life and make it reflect what she is going through.

Q. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

A. The everyday stuff, errands, decorating, friends, sleep, Tivo; nothing monumental but it makes me feel like me.

Q. Is there anything else in the entertainment business besides acting that you'd like to try your hand at?

A. If anything, producing. Iím starting to do a little bit of it and I really enjoy it.

Q. What would you like to say to all of your fans and supporters?

A. Thank you for your patience, opinions and loyalty. This wouldnít exist without you.
