Adrianne: Angelina Jolie is my style inspiration.
Adrianne: It's scary to be an actor and come in and be like, you have power. Usually it's "Stand there, say this, know your lines."
Adrianne: I keep myself grounded by surrounding myself with amazing people. My three priorities in life are my family and friends, my career, and just living!
Adrianne: Be who you are. Don't listen to other people's ideas of who you should be. Beauty does come from within. Be yourself!
Adrianne: I think I feel the most beautiful when I put on a sexy pair of heels and go out with the girls.
Adrianne: It was very cold. That's what I remember most. It was like 30 degrees and breezy and there were like 20 people there but, you know, it wasn't a big deal.
Adrianne: I think the character of Kara in Smallville was a little different from the one in the comic because her motive is different. She's not evil by any means whatsoever, but she does come to Clark for a specific reason. She doesn't really have a sense of right or wrong; the morality isn't there.
Adrianne: My psyche has been very impacted in that there are moments where you're, like, "Do I really want to do this?" Though I know in my heart this is what I really want to do, the question was: would I enjoy the process itself?
Adrianne: We had a fight scene that was amazingly well-choreographed, but then Mr Woo came in and said, "Very good, but do this," and he goes in there and starts fighting. It's just amazing to see John Woo kick alien ass! It's not something you get to see very often.
Adrianne: When I lived in New York for those three months, I needed to see a play every week, because eventually that's where I want to end up.
Adrianne: In all honesty, it's unbelievable to get these roles. You work so hard when you're trying to be cast and to get a guest role on a low budget show would be a dream come true, but to be able to do these two shows and play these characters, there are no words. I am so lucky to have done them.
Adrianne: And to work with Mr Woo, he's just the most amazing person. He's Yoda, the master of what he does.
Adrianne: I just needed this little glimpse to see that I've never been happier than when I've been on sets performing. It's the most amazing feeling in the world, and I think I needed this to keep going, to keep thriving and to keep going for it.
Adrianne: [Smallville producer] Greg Beeman used an analogy that kind of helped me through the process, which is that Kara's an angel who comes to Jesus, who is Clark, and is telling him what he's going to be, with Jor-El being God. So throughout the entire thing she's the messenger, sent to help Clark see what he needs to see, because he doesn't know the full extent of his powers yet.
Adrianne: I liked the character of Judy for the fact that she's me when I was 16, she has the same problems as normal 16 year-olds, so when I went in to audition, it was a breeze to understand her.
Adrianne: I would love to do Broadway, I don't think there's anything more amazing than theatre. Okay, Supergirl is number one. Maybe I could be Supergirl on Broadway! That would be perfect.
Adrianne: Not to say that she [Katie Holmes] had it easy, but she did book Dawson's Creek from Toledo.
Adrianne (about Katie Holmes): She was in high school. She sent in a tape as an audition. She wouldn't go in to test because her school was doing Damn Yankees and there was no-one to fill in for her, but they postponed the test for her and then she got the part.
Adrianne: I love science fiction and all of that stuff.
Adrianne: At that moment, I knew what I had to do.
Adrianne: I'm a geek but it's the best thing to be.
Adrianne: You don't really grasp the idea of what it's really like, but I'm glad it didn't happen right away, because the experience of going through the process has only benefited my acting.
Adrianne: Katie [Holmes] is from my hometown of Toledo, Ohio.
Adrianne: So, coming from that and seeing that as the only form of reality I knew from the business, I was like, "I'm going to go to Los Angeles and in a month I'll be doing movies or a show."
Adrianne: I had to move back to Toledo because of a little thing called money.
Adrianne: I used to watch Lost In Space with my dad.
