Erika: Every day I go for a run and swim in the morning or hit the gym at night. I've got much more energy than I know what to do with, and I'd drive people nuts if I didn't get rid of some of it on a small piece of equipment.
Erika (on maintaining her figure): I find if I've got a week and I don't get the opportunity to exercise. I get really lethargic and a bit tired and grumpy. So I give myself a bit of exercise every day, then I'm sparky and feel good. That way, you can process whatever junk you might have put in your body, too.
Erika (on her boyfriend, Andrew): He tucks me in, feeds me, closes the door and just lets me unwind. It can't get any better than what I've got right now.
Erika (on her role In the movie 'Gabrielle'): That was probably the meatiest role I've done, and I think it'll be the first film of mine that goes onto the big screen, so that's pretty big. And it's a very different role for me.
Erika (talking about appearing on It Takes Two):
This is going to be incredibly confronting, challenging and exciting, and very, very funny!
Erika: R'n'B and soul, but if I was to dip into my deeply cheesy side, I'd say I love musicals.
