I love doing things that may not be everybody else's cup of tea.
I was known as the entertainer, that's where I got my identity.
The first audition I ever went on, I was accompanied by my mother at the instruction of my father. "You have to learn how to take rejection if you really want to be an actor", he said. He had to eat his own words. I got the job.
[Differentiating between Knots Landing (1979) and Desperate Housewives (2004)]: The Teri Hatcher character, ("Susan Mayer"), who is the moral center, if you will, that would be like a "Karen" , my character. Then, there's the bad girl, Nicollette Sheridan, ("Edie Britt"), who is much like Donna Mills.
