Erin: On Carnivale, I was playing the younger version of Amy Madigan, which meant I had to look like her. So, I had to have blue eyes, red hair, and freckles. I wore blue contacts, and the hair stylist put stuff in my hair to make it red. The make-up artist painted freckles all over my face and arms. It tickled! I also had to have a Russian accent, and actually speak Russian, neither of which I do. So, they had a dialect coach come to the set and tutor me in Russian! But, don't ask me to tell you what I had to say; I don't remember!
Erin: I like Quinn because she's not afraid to be different. Actually, she prefers it that way! Her sense of style is really funky and cool, too.
Erin: Quinn wears glasses, but I don't in real life, I have 20/20 vision.
Erin: I hope that Quinn will, kind of, re-set the standard of what you'd expect from a TV girl, you know? She's a loyal friend and devoted girlfriend, and the other kids really like her. But she doesn't feel the need to conform; she's not afraid to be her own person. She does what she wants, and doesn't care what other people think. If they like her, that's cool. If they don't, well, that's their problem. She's not going to change for someone else.
Erin: Here is how I would describe Quinn: smart,quirky, fun, a little eccentric, likes baby food, and just plain brilliant.
