I am so overwhelmed and flattered with the amount of love and thought that goes into the character by fans. For a character that’s only been in six episodes in five seasons, to have such an impact is so wonderful. I never in a million years thought that would happen to my character when I started. I didn’t expect my character to come back after the pilot! When you die within the first minute-and-a-half of a show, you don’t expect it to go on for five years. It’s incredible!
