“I actually remember my first day really well. It was a lot of pages. I was cast on a Friday and had to come in and work on Monday, so somebody delivered eight scripts to my house on Saturday morning, and I knew I had to do at least one on Monday. It was tons of dialogue with the whole Salem Strangler story, and my character came on a few weeks ahead of Roman’s character. And my first scenes were with John Clark [Mickey Horton], who was so extraordinarily helpful that first day. Everybody was very kind and encouraging.”
