*Who wasn't friends with my husband first.
LA neighborhood: Sherman Oaks
LA native or newbie? 3 years in LA. Originally from Framingham, MA
Why did you move to LA? "I lived in San Francisco, and the fog was killing me. But really—I love how many creative people there are here in LA, the opportunities and the optimism."
What's your dream job? "Exactly what I am doing now, but more of it. I write and perform. I just finished a feature, and I'm in the middle of writing a novel."
Current obsessions? "Homeland. Downton Abbey. I do have obsessions outside of TV, but it's rare."
Craziest thing that's ever happened to you? "Morgan Freeman once scolded me for jaywalking. I was walking across the street, and I hear that voice of his say, "That doesn't look like a crosswalk." I turned around and said, "Oh, I'm sorry...Morgan Freeman."
What do you know for sure? "Life's too short to be cool."
