And when I go to see plays, I marvel at how people can do that. I've done it all my life, but I still find it mystical.
I've been amazed that it's so popular with people. But it's been fantastic. People are very excited when I walk into a place and they recognize me from the series.
It's about these people who are inextricably together for whatever reasons, and they happen to be in the spy world. It's about relationships, and the bottom line is, that's why you care.
It's disgusting that a Broadway show can't try out anymore, that no matter where they are in the world, there is this massive dialogue going on between people damning or praising it.
Being on a television series is sort of life-altering on every level.
I believe that acting in any medium is the same thing, it's discovering the truth in where you are.
The stage is where I feel most comfortable, and I miss it all the time.
I had done some TV movies that were great experiences but, no, I wasn't looking to do a series.
I think from a very young age I always have this desire to perform.
I find out more about Jack every week. Essentially, I'm the same character, but I'm having more fun this season because I'm doing more aliases, you know. I like the surprise of not knowing.
The first thing I read was of my character on the phone talking to Sydney's fiance. Though short, it was so beautifully written, and it made me laugh. I thought if I wanted to play a character, this would be it.
You have to find something there that relates to the characters and reality on some level.
I find that everything I do is demanding, like Jack Bristow is a complicated man and I do a lot of explaining in the show, it takes a lot of energy and concentration.
The crew loves working on the show, even though we have to work really hard. There's nobody in the show that's difficult. We really have a great group.
Thank goodness I started getting movie roles and then television shows came along. So I was very fortunate to be able to do all three and I like all of them.
