Alona: The first time I went on set because the first time you get to work here, seeing that I'm from a different country, it's just like a dream, so you remember that.
Alona: I am incredibly happy and honored to have anyone interested in what I have to say and in what I do. I enjoy my work and it gives me tremendous pleasure to see that other people enjoy it as well.
Alona: I think any actor would tell you they prefer having the time to discover more and more things about a character ... it's only natural. But - if you do enough work - you can find out a lot about any character, even if you are working on it for one day.
Alona: The first time that I watched it [Veronica Mars] I had my hands over my mouth, I was embarrassed and I was red, I was blushing like a tomato.
Alona: (on playing a student of Neptune High in "Veronica Mars") It's kind of like reliving it, even though I've never been to an American high school. So, for me it's like living it for the first time, it's pretty accurate with the characters, the school and the sets and everything.
Alona: I remember walking on set and seeing the many, many employees and all the people and the art department and the beautiful sets and I was just in awe.
Alona: They are not just teenage problems so and a lot of these teenage kids are a lot more mature then ninety percent of the grown-ups that I have come across. I think that it's just the style of the show [Veronica Mars], they have to be genuine, they have to be real, they have to be human. Even Meg, she's pretty genuine and nice, but she has her bad side, everybody has their bad side.
Alona: So, naturally because I want to do the best job when you watch yourself you are like, 'oh, damn it, I could have done this better.' At the end of the day I'm pretty happy with what I have done.

Alona: In this town any kind of work is blessed, and when it's written perfectly and when it's witty and just good material and good characters and storyline, you want to be a part of it.
Alona: (They worked together on "Veronica Mars") The first scene with Kristen [Bell] who is amazing and I'm sure you know that! She's incredible and the first scene I did with her, she basically calmed me down and was so reassuring and I'll always remember that. She was in a towel and it was funny, the first scene that we shot was the one in the bathroom.
Alona: I'm only human so I have my moments when I close my eyes and I can't watch anything.
Alona: I am so grateful that I even have people who know my name and they are the most precious things to somebody like me. I only hope I make them happy when I do my job, I hope they continue enjoying the show [Veronica Mars]. If I do more things I just hope they enjoy them also, I am eternally grateful to each and every one!
