I grew up in Greenwich Village. Dad was friends with John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
I’m open to sci-fi, but I was never a diehard fan. I have no idea why it keeps following me. I’m extremely lucky, I guess; it’s a lucrative venue.
A comic can be aesthetically beautiful. I think they captured it beautifully and accurately.
Don’t we all just really try to fake it well?
I am so happy to be on a show with writing I wanted to participate in.
I can be extremely vulnerable. People are tough on me because they think I can handle it.
I don’t know that I’d necessarily want to see into the future. I don’t want to know what’s happening next.
I had to skydive for the movie and I was terrified. Like everybody, I thought it was going to be one of those experiences that changes your life. It didn’t.
I hope I don’t just sit around moping for two years.
I love old movies. The ’40s theatre pace is fantastic.
I never worked less than 16-hour days on South Beach.
I pretty much make time for that weekly manicure.
I think seeing some of the past can be helpful, especially if you’re into crime solving.
I think sometimes women who are supposed to be strong are also written as mean and vindictive.
I dig science fiction, though it was never really my thing.
I’m just an actress. They try to give me as little information as possible.
I’ve spent a lot of time and money trying to keep my anger in control.
I’m the oldest 26-year-old I know. A lot of experience has been crammed into a short amount of time.
Some days I feel a good 65, 70. Like I want to lie down.
I’ve always played strong women who are doing their own thing.
Imagine if it happened to you: All of a sudden you find this thing on your wrist and people are telling you it has powers. I would be a little skeptical myself.
My grandfather was a cop in Long Island. I often try to draw on things that I’ve heard about him.
My junior high was dreadful. I see a lot of my fellow alumni on America’s Most Wanted.
My mother’s side of the family was in the production side of theatre. My grandfather, Jose Vega, was a general manager for Neil Simon shows on Broadway.
My taste in music and entertainment is quite eclectic.
Once you get into a part, and someone sees you, you get asked to do it again.
People just kind of associate me with kicking some ass.
To say I’m the easiest person to live with would be a lie.
Whether it goes to series or stands by itself, I’m proud of what we did with it, not only from the standpoint of what it could have been, but for itself.
Women have been kicking ass for centuries.
Yancy is actually a Native-American name, but I’m Irish. Go figure.
I’ll try anything once.
My father used to sing to me in my mother’s womb. I think I can name about any tune in two beats.
