My great love is the stage because I do feel like it’s the place where, if you’re lucky and everything is firing in the right way, you have the greatest shot at being successful. I don’t mean by getting great reviews, but I mean by finding the core fo the person that you’re playing.

I played a lesbian reporter in 1964, who was incarcerated, and ended the series as a 75-year-old woman.

And then, I played a heroin addict.

I could feel my body temperature – I knew I was bright red. It was so humiliating, I was so upset, and it was nothing I had planned to do. It was just one of those beautiful moments, the alchemy of acting that is so mysterious, where you sort of go, “How did that come out of me?”

I just don’t feel that we’ve traveled very far in the realm of social equality. There just seems to be a little bit of unrest. And sometimes I think that happens when you really feel like something’s about to change. Right before the moment of lift off, sometimes things feel a little bit unhinged, and that’s what it feels like to me right now, both as a woman and just as a human on the planet as an American woman in America. I feel like we’re on the precipice of change. I feel a little nervous.

I learned, having played Marcia Clark, what the value of that is in your life because it can affect everything, every choice you make, the way you deal with a stranger on the street, or your best friend or lover.

I have friends say, “Don’t you want to have a little you?” The jury’s still out on that for me. I don’t have a definitive answer, but I do know that I can look back on some of the things I’ve worked on and some of the things that have literally come out of my imagination and be just as proud of it as if I had created a person. I feel like that shouldn’t be of any less value. It can’t be because it’s what my life is, and I don’t want to make it smaller or more palatable just because society tells you to. If you can get comfortable with sacrifice, then you are having it all.

I think sometimes when you can feel the velocity of change, like nowadays, you really need a seat belt. It’s almost like having a growth spurt that you can feel, like a 16-year-old who woke up one day and grew four inches literally overnight. That can be a painful thing sometimes.
