other people. It's just so much fun. We
have a blast."
As the only out lesbian in the main cast (to
date) does she ever feel under pressure to
instruct the other actresses in any of the
many, shall we say, libidinal scenes? I can
hear her smiling.
"No. Not at all. I think it's pretty easy to
figure out for girls...what it's like."
Off-screen her "buddies" are Kate Moennig
(Shane), Erin Daniels (Dana) and Mia
Kirshner (Jenny). "I've made great friends,
for sure. Life-long friends."
She agrees that the magic amongst the
mostly all-female cast is a rarity onscreen.
"I think the fact that we were all a part of
something that hadn't been done, we felt a
responsibility as a team to sort of go out
there and get it right. And then you have
the old chemistry thing. It sort of clicked.
We're all around the same age, we like to
do the same thing." Based in LA, the cast
live in Vancouver for half the year. "It feels
like a weird second home now."
The season one pilot was essential viewing
for lesbians worldwide, many households
hosting L Word evenings. What was she
doing when the show aired for the first
time? "We had a little party." Was she
nervous? "I was freaking out, are you
kidding?! I was beyond nervous. And I
can't stand watching myself. I had a pillow
over my face the whole time. I just hear my
voice, to me I sound like a chipmunk.
That's all I can focus on. Although it's fun;
I like watching it."
When a second season was scheduled she
was "flipping out. I was even more excited
about season three. I'm really, really proud
to be on the show. My commitment is huge
in this. I would like to go on with it as long
as it's happening. I'm just sort of enjoying
year to year when we get the pick up call.
I'm a really happy girl."
Aren't we all. e
