It's nice to go and be a guest on a television sitcom. It pays well; it's easy because generally it's a supporting role, so you go, you do two or three things, you're in touch with people there. They're widely popular, so they're seen by many people.
As a guest who doesn't eat, drink or smoke, you leave much to be desired, but as a writer, you're my girl.
Comedy scares me a lot. I feel like it's way harder than drama. I think my safety net is definitely drama, and I would love to kind of be able to be able to push into the comedy world and do something kind of like a Christopher Guest kind of style show.

Our profession is very much like going to a cocktail party, you check out the guest list.
