My uh, geek fan theory that I subscribe to, is the one that we are part of some sort of a conspiratorial experiment. That we have all been hand-picked, put on a plane, the plane was sabotaged to crash, and that we were somehow, we were meant to survive. I think that human life and human casualty is just a given in this experiment that... our lives have no value. If you look at the characters on the show, almost all of us, if I'm not mistaken, really have no ties left at home. There's pretty much nobody who's looking for us, nobody who would care that we've gone missing, and so it's safe. It's safe to dispose of human life in order to study human behavior.
Ironically, when I hit adolescence, I was approached about modeling and acting all the time. And, for five years, I said, 'No, I'm not interested. I want a simple life, I don't want to be in the spotlight.' Finally, a dear friend said to me, 'Why, when you believe that everything in life happens for a reason, and that everything will lead you to where you need to go, do you ignore this one thing that keeps knocking on your door?' And I gave all these really legitimate reasons. 'Oh, well, it's a very shallow industry. It perpetuates a negative image for women. It's this and it's that, and I don't want any part of it.' And, he looked me in the eye and said, 'I think that's bull. I think you're afraid of your own success, and your strength and your power.'
I have always wanted to have a child of my own and I will always want to go through the gift that women have been given to experience that, so I hope to be a mother at some point.
I loved being a waitress. At times I think...I'd just like to go back and be a waitress for a few weeks and just have fun serving tables again.
I always wear something slightly masculine.
I'm a good Canadian girl. I miss all that good stuff. I miss tobogganing and I miss snowboarding, but I've also learned to surf and I've become a water baby which I used to be relatively terrified of the water and I kayak all the time now and I'm able to run year round on the beach which you can't obviously do in Canada. So there is all of that and it has been really great.
I think that being isolated from the Hollywood world of premieres and red carpet events was probably good for me because I could ease into those at will and by my own choice. But in other aspects, when it comes to fanfare Hawaii is nuts and in L.A. they're all so jaded. They don't care. They see another star and it's like, 'oh yeah, we've seen a hundred of them before. You're a dime a dozen'. Which is a little bit easier to deal with.
I'm a very stubborn woman and I'm from a very stubborn family of headstrong women. I have sisters, so the women rule the coop in my house. And I had some situations where I had to fight tooth and nail, I mean, literally standing toe to toe with the director and he's saying: 'Go on set and do it.' And I'm saying: 'I'm not going on set, you can deal with it because I'm not doing it.' But then there's been other situations where they've voluntarily, without my even saying anything, respected that line that I've drawn.
Being the hot star isn't the dream. But I can do more humanitarian work and effect more people on a larger scale. Not necessarily because I'm famous but just because, financially, I'm more capable and I have more influence. It's an amazing place to be in.
My goal as an actress is to be able to work for as long as I want to work with as little attention and fame as possible.
I always keep really mom about my love life. I've seen so many tabloids where they have a beautiful picture of a couple and they tear a line down the middle.
As soon as I left high school I cut my ties with everyone I knew and took off to a new city and I started again. I moved [between] towns in British Columbia. I remember saying to myself when I got to this new town, 'You can be anyone you want to be now. Nobody knows you. Nobody has an expectation of you. So you choose who you want to be.'
I'm not stressed out about where my next paycheck is coming from, or what I am doing with the rest of my life. The fact that the side of my brain that worries about my future has been able to turn off and enjoy where I am at, and the simplicity of little aspects of my life, I just reveal in it.
I tend to appreciate the tiny moments and they make me the happiest.
I never would have guessed Hawaii or Hollywood would be able to provide me with one of my dreams.
I love it. I LOVE it! I love acting, being paid to be creative. I've always been really passionate about the arts. But I also constantly yo-yo between wanting to do this for a long time, wanting to achieve a certain level of respect in this industry, and then at the other end of the scale wanting to run for the hills screaming 'this is terrifying and I want out.'
I think there's a part of everyone that's intrigued by the thought of being recognized.
I loved being anonymous and settled.
Whenever I turned up to castings I'd see all these women in trampy clothes, flirting with the male director. It was awful.
I avoided the industry for so long because I resent it for so many reasons. There was no way that my ideas about life and morality were going to coincide with that industry, so there was no point in even playing with fire.
