Ellen: (on how she is different from her character Georgia Lass) I'm not as bitter as she is. I don't blame people as often as she does. I take responsibility for my actions more than she does.
Ellen: I feel most comfortable playing and creating characters who are least like myself.
Ellen: (on the show Dead Like Me ending) I was really upset. The script, back when I read it during the pilot, it was the kind of role where you read the script and you say, "This is so unique and so different and so dynamic. I can go in so many different directions with this character. It's too good to be true for me to actually get it." And then I got the role and it was so upsetting to have to stop so soon.
Ellen Muth: (about atmosphere on the set of "Dead Like Me") Everyone gets along great.It's very rare that you got a cast and crew as close and tight as we are. We're all of different age brackets, so it's not like there's any competition, there's no jealousy or rivalry.
Ellen Muth: (About working on 'Dead Like Me') It still hasn't hit me yet because I've had so many disappointments. I never imagined getting a commercial. I thought it was one of those things that is one in a million and that it wouldn't happen to me... It's been an amazing journey.
Ellen Muth: (About her character George Lass) Actually, what's appealing about the role is the character's dry sense of humor and the fact that she doesn't even realize that she's funny half the time. I also love George's curiosity about life and death and the fact that deep down inside she does care about people...
Ellen: Ever since I was a little kid, whenever my parents would have company over, I would put on shows, whether they would be magic shows, singing shows, dancing shows, little skits.
(Ellen on performing at a young age)
Ellen: Ever since I was a little kid, whenever my parents would have company over, I would put on shows. Whether they would be magic shows, singing shows, dancing shows, little skits. I would do improv, and then I started making my own movies.
