Jeanne Tripplehorn


“I was worried I wouldn’t get to do anything with Blake,” she says. “The scene is not just Prentiss and Blake; it’s Paget and Jeanne. I know that sometimes when you shake up a cast, people take a long time to accept the new person. When I joined, a lot of people hated me, hated my character. I know that had happened to Jeanne a little bit. Paget and Jeanne like each other, so I really wanted there to be a scene with them to show that there’s no, ‘You took my spot.’ One of the best things about Criminal Minds is that the women support women and it really is like a family. You don’t always get that.”
