It’s interesting once you see a pattern arise in your work as far as how people might perceive you or where your strengths lie. I’m not sure how I landed in these government roles, I’ve been very fortunate and all of these characters, they’ve all been different in their own way. I like the idea I get to be my own fully-formed woman and fully-formed character and it’s not necessarily about being depended on a man.
