Petite powerhouse Kristin Chenoweth recalls her own beyond-the-grave moment.

Favorite TV spot?
It should be the living room with my big-screen TV, but it’s in my bedroom, lying down so I can veg out.

Favorite TV shows?
AMC’s Mad Men. I just love it. I like the period pieces a lot.

Your TV crush?
The cast of Big Shots. Josh Malina is a good friend!

Your Pushing Daisies co-star Lee Pace (Ned) is 6-foot-3 and you’re barely 5 feet!
The other day, they were doing a shot over my back to him. Usually they place the cameras to the side to get the shot. They just went over my head. It’s so comical. They never comment on our height difference, but it’s so evident!

Have you ever had a beyond-the-grave encounter?
I got very sick and maybe I was delirious from fever, but I saw my grandmother, who passed away before I was born, standing in the corner of my apartment. I asked my mom if her mother had ever owned a black-and-white polka-dot dress, and she said, “She sure did.” That’s what she was wearing when I saw her.

Favorite type of pie?
Sour Cream Apple Walnut Pie by the Little Pie Company in New York City. It’s just so delicious!
