"I played a nurse and there was this beautiful blonde, Sarah Lancaster, who was cast as the casino dealer. I'm in a room with her, and they said, 'Someone's going to have to change their hair color.' She's tan with these beautiful lioness green eyes and this mane of blonde hair. And I looked at her and me, with my pale freckles, and thought, Gee, I wonder which one of us is going to go red!... It really changed things up. People began to see me in a different way, for different roles. I don't know if I can give credit to just the hair color, but maybe it did help people see me past blonde."
