My TV Family Is…

“…growing up! The kids Emma Kenney, Ethan Cutkosky and Cameron Monaghan are starting to rebel against me, like younger siblings would. In the first couple of seasons, they used to really look up to me. Now they’re like, “We know how to do this acting thing.”

Dating a Costar Is…

“...only natural. When you have things 
in common with people, when the same things inspire you, it’s only natural that you would fall for somebody who has similar interests. When you’re working 18 hours a day, six days a week, it’s very difficult to meet someone, except at work. But there’s a big danger in that too. If it doesn’t work out, then things can be incredibly awkward. I’m lucky enough that my togetherness and my breakups including with Shameless costar Tyler Jacob Moore have been very amicable and we always put work first.”

“…I said, “Absolutely!” I’d only met her once or twice before that.”
