1. First, what’s the last TV show you binge-watched?
2. Do you have a favorite TV show?
The “before bed TV” tends to be our favorite comedy shows. So we always turn on The Office, New Girl, or Parks and Rec.
3. Which emoji do you use the most?
Oh my goodness. I mean, that could get me in trouble. I probably would say either “praise hands” (🙌) or “heart eyes” (😍), one of the two.
4. What’s something you’ve gotten into or picked back up since the pandemic?
I didn’t cook as much before the pandemic and then we really got into it. I find that takeout makes me feel sad because I love the experience of restaurants, so I just started cooking at home.
5. Do you have a favorite thing to cook?
Yes, I make an incredible beef stew from scratch, like the entire thing. It’s one of my favorite things to make. Another thing is this Moroccan chicken with vegetables, and then, I make this avocado yogurt dipping sauce with sage and lemon.
6. What’s the last book you read?
Such a Fun Age. It was so good. The girls from the show [For All Mankind] and I all read a bunch of books together during the pandemic, like Where the Crawdads Sing, Such a Fun Age, and Normal People. We would try to read one a month.
BuzzFeed: I love that we’ve all just been going through Reese Witherspoon’s book club list during the pandemic.
I know, right? We all follow her and are like, “What did she say to read next?”
7. What’s your wildest fan story?
I mean, the proposals that happen that are very serious, like I’ve been sent videos with proposals. One guy did it in person. I was in Paris at a convention for One Tree Hill, and the guy got down on one knee. I just thought it was for a photo, and I was like, “Ha! Of course I’ll marry you.” He was not kidding and had a ring. I was like, “I…I have a boyfriend. So I’m so sorry that I said ‘Yes!’ I was kidding.” Obviously, I’m thinking it’s all just for a photo op, but it definitely wasn’t. He was very, very serious. So that got awkward very quick.
8. Who have you been the most starstruck by?
Probably Helen Mirren. I was at an after awards show party and saw her float into the room in this blue dress. I just stood there like mouth agape, as though I was a small girl watching a princess walk into a room.
