Well, it was something I always wanted to do from the time I was a child. But when I was in grade twelve deciding whether I was going to go to the university for drama, then 9/11 happened. That made me kinda put the brakes on. I wanted to do something that could affect people more--something that was more helpful. So instead of applying to drama school, I went to be a police officer instead. I did the training for two years, then the program, and I did about two hundred hours of ridealongs, and that's when I realized I wore my heart on my sleeve a little bit too much to be an officer, and so I decided to go to law school instead.

I honestly never would have thought of you being a police officer.

I know. I'm very different than the characters I portray. I grew up in a small town, and I grew up kind of like a tomboy with a lot of fishing and camping and sports.

There was a fan question that came in. They wanted to know if Lucille Ball is an inspiration to you, and I wasn't sure why they asked.

I think it's because I have a Lucille Ball picture on my twitter as my background. And yes, Lucille Ball is definitely an inspiration to me.

The first day's scenes Jensen wasn't in, so I just met him as director, and the next day I was working with him in the scene as well.

They make every new actor feel super comfortable. Everybody knows what they're doing very, very well. No one's finding their feet . Every time you step into movies of the week, the crew's just coming together. The actors are just coming together. It's always new people, and it's kind of like going through this marathon together. But with Supernatural, they know exactly what they're doing. I remember that I was worried about the fact that I had a couple of lines in Latin.
