Caitlin confirmed her recent lap-band surgery on an episode of Entertainment Tonight. The ET camera crew documented the entire process for a segment on the show. Caitlin's character on Guiding Light Ashlee, also underwent the same procedure.
Caitlin was named "Soap Star of the Year" by TV Guide in their final issue of 2007.
Caitlin almost didn't get the part of "Allegra" on The Sopranos, because she was considered "too young".
In a June "Find Your Light" segment, Caitlin revealed that her mother was a single parent. She often told her daughter that she was a "surprise, not a mistake", and her mother did everything she could to make Caitlin's life great. Caitlin's mother is her "light".
On the Feb. 16, 2007 episode of Guiding Light, Caitlin sang "The Wedding Song (There is Love)" by Noel Paul Stookey, but this was not her first time singing in front of the camera. "I'm Still Here" by Stephen Sondheim was performed by Caitlin and two other cast members of the movie Camp. The song is also featured on the movie's soundtrack.
Caitlin is a huge fan of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton movies.
Caitlin: (on her lap-band surgery) I don't know why it's such a taboo topic, but it is! I'm always reading articles where celebrities talk about everything from their drug rehab stints to the people they've slept with, yet I've gotten flack on the internet for doing the Lap-Band as if I'm somehow being a bad role model. A lot of the fans relate to me because I'm real looking - which I think is wonderful - but they also had this predisposed notion that I was proud of the way I looked. The truth is, I've been self-conscious about my weight since I was a kid. I haven't worn a bathing suit since I was six - we even used that as a line on the show.

Caitlin: The older I get the less difference it makes to me personally, so the 'F' word doesn't sting!
(On a scene she'd love to do on "Guiding Light")
Caitlin: A torrid sex scene with any hunk of Springfield! I think that would be enjoyable, but again comical.
Caitlin: I love that my job allows people to come up and talk to me. You wouldn't get that working at an office.
(After the cast of "Guiding Light" traveled to Biloxi, MS to rebuild homes)
Caitlin: I am a changed person because of my experience. I really am. I didn't realize it went beyond New Orleans before we got down there. I knew the Gulf was hit, but I didn't know how bad. I didn't know how bad things were still. It looks like a Third World country.
Caitlin: I prefer comedy because I find it more challenging. I have a very full emotional life that I can tap into and that I can relate to, but comedy is fantastic. I love things that are a little suspended from reality.
Caitlin: The fabulous thing about daytime; all your co-workers are sexy men.
Caitlin: (On getting the part of Ashlee Wolfe) Honestly, I didn't believe for a second I would get it. I wasn't a "typical" soap opera type.
Caitlin: (on Stagedoor Manor) Mandy Moore was two doors down from me. Natalie Portman was there, too. It had musical theater, straight plays, and classes. But beyond acting, I learned how to act backstage and how to act material. And a man there named Michael Larson took the kids seriously and changed countless lives.
