I've been exercising all my life... I was a long sprinter. The ones that hurt.
I think I'm a people person. I get very attached to people. And I've become so attached to all the people on my show, the cast, the crew and the producers.
In the beginning, people think vulnerability will make you weak, but it does the opposite. It shows you're strong enough to care.
It's all about exploring the more unpredictable aspects in the character, not just fighting people.
People get on a show and they fought tooth and nail. Almost 95% of the actors out there want to be on a television series. Then as soon as they get onto one, no, no, I want to be a movie star. This television series stuff, no, no no.
The most important thing is to just be good at what you do. You do a good job playing the character, and people will be taken up with your character, not your clothes.
We don't move on in the stunt unless it looks like a hit. So when I see it on TV, I'm generally satisfied that people are going to buy it.
Acting isn't the be-all end-all. There are a lot of other things in my life that will bring me joy if I didn't act anymore.
I read every script from beginning to end, and I read every draft that I can. I like the show, I like the character, and I want to protect both of those things.
That's the thing with sci-fi and action roles. You have to play the danger as real. If you don't, you end up with egg on your face. You have to commit. You can't think about how stupid it might look without the special effects.
Cast changes are a hard thing. For two years, we had this little family. We weren't together when these changes were decided upon. It all happened during our hiatus.
I think I've paid my dues. I've really put in a lot of time on set.
Linda Hamilton is my hero. She was so tough and so strong and so vulnerable at the same time. I think that's what woman action figures are allowed to be: vulnerable, in a way that women are.
I approach my character with the question: What would an animal think? How would an animal respond? A lot of times, it's quick action and no fear, and sometimes it's irrational fear. You don't always know.
It doesn't help anybody to put out a bad script.
