In playing a strong female character for 10 years on Smallville, I never realized how fortunate I was to not play someone’s arm candy. That was until I got back into the auditioning circuit.
Many people are asking me why I’m not working. It has now been 1 year since I last set foot on a film set.
Well, the answer is simple: There are very few writers like you (Joss Whedon) in this industry. A “strong woman role” or a “strong female story” is still considered a genre in the film industry – anything but mainstream.
The female hero should have strength, wisdom, compassion and integrity. I am no longer ok with portraying anything that degrades or erodes this type of woman.
So I will wait patiently…(maybe even try writing a little) until I get the next, “strong female character” I can sink my teeth into."

Oliver: Business suited cyber savior
Chloe: It worked, right?
there is no better compliment than “every time I see your favorite character, I think of you”
you know what i love
i love when you find that one character. that character that is your absolute favorite. the character that, just by thinking of them, makes you incredibly emotional. you know that character is the one for you. they’re your number one. and you know you will never love another more

if you think i will name my future child after a fictional character then you are absolutely right
There is a difference
between having a love interest
and being reduced to a love interest for a male lead.
That is all.
