Currently... Update Edition
It's ridiculous how long it's been since I've updated here. Life seemed to pick up and fly. I decided maybe the best way to update is join Katy Upperman and others with a Currently post. Loving... Being a mom! My husband and I were matched for open adoption...

I like this photo. It was taken, if I'm not mistaken, while rehearsing a scene where Alan clipped me and Rupert round the back of a head with a book. We all, apparently, found this hard to do without laughing.

Always.
Alan Rickman is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with. He is also, one of the loyalest and most supportive people I've ever met in the film industry. He was so encouraging of me both on set and in the years post-Potter. I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that. I know other people who've been friends with him for much much longer than I have and they all say "if you call Alan, it doesn't matter where in the world he is or how busy he is with what he's doing, he'll get back to you within a day".

People create perceptions of actors based on the parts they played so it might surprise some people to learn that contrary to some of the sterner(or downright scary) characters he played, Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny. And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass.

As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.

I checked out Anne of Green Gables books (and movies) out of the library more than anything else growing up.

Things are Happening: In the Every Day
A few weeks ago, I had a great visit and walk with my friend Elle in La Jolla. Afterwards, I needed to cool off so I decided to put my feet into the ocean. I wasn't sure at first about doing it while I leaned over the fence, taking in the waves.  It wasn't ...

Things are Happening: North Dakota Trip and Adoption Announcement
It's hard to believe that summer has passed and we're heading into fall. Over the past two weeks, this massive tree over our home in San Diego has been shedding its leaves. They are all over our backyard, and even though we share space with three other carp...
