“The Evil Queen is a very complex, delicious, fun character to play. I love the joy she feels when threatening/intimidating others - too fun. She’s extremely unapologetic and yet still seeks to grow into a better human being. That is what I love most about her. She is a multi-dimensional character. The good in her was born out of love. Her love for Henry and her love and commitment to Daniel. The bad is the most delicious to play. It was born out of revenge. She’s been burned and it’s time for people to pay for the pain they’ve caused.”

"There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them."

"You have to pay attention to the moments when you’ve felt on top on the world. I remember the first time I was on stage, I was doing ‘West Side Story,’ I was 17 and this woman was crying because she liked what I was doing so much."
