Do people confuse you with your character?
Yes and no. I've had people tell the me that it's nice to see me smile or that they were afraid to come and say hi because they thought I might be mean! The recent phenomenon is the whole cat thing. Yes, I do have two cats in real life but my character is a true "cat lady" and people have really tapped into that. Fans have sent me a cat lady doll that came with cat figurines, cat stickers, and my cat Lucy's picture on real stamps! Now my family has gotten into it. Recently my ninety year old Grandmother sent me a 2008 Cat Calendar, my sister sent me a cat picture frame and stationery, my mother-in-law sent me a cat Christmas ornament and my Mom sent me a cat stuffed animal for the baby (it's white and fluffy and looks like Sprinkles!). This could get out of control. ;)
What has been your favorite Angela Martin moment so far?
My favorite Angela Martin moment so far would have to be the very first Christmas episode. It was the first Angela Martin meltdown. After a long day of shooting, it was the last shot of the day. They had three different guys working fake snow machines. Two on top of the building and one in a crane above me. It was dark and kinda cold out. It really felt like winter even though we were in Southern California. I got to throw ornaments and stomp on them and scream all while snowing was gently falling. It was awesome!
