  • Quotes

    • Jill Wagner: (On what made her move to Los Angeles and go after an acting career)
      I always felt the need to move to a big city and broaden my horizons a bit. Coming from a small town I think sometimes you tend to be a little sheltered and I wanted to experience new places and meet different types of people. I think after I graduated it was my time to either go for it or regret it for the rest of my life. I took a chance.

    • Jill Wagner: I have taken up a new hobby of Archery. I just got a coach and I hope to get pretty good at it.

    • Jill Wagner: I love lingerie. I have an obsession with it. I don't like the over-the-top lingerie. I prefer classic pieces. Hopefully, I'll get to share it with a man at some point.

    • Jill Wagner (about her commercials for Lincoln Mercury): Before I got the job I had $150 in the bank. Now they run my commercials so often I'll come home and have 12 checks waiting for me.

    • Jill Wagner: My whole life, my friends have told me that I need to get into singing. I always wanted to mess around and record something, but singing to me is very personal. I have a list of things to do before I die and doing a CD is one of them. Not releasing it but just to have it. I love being in the studio. Maybe I should have been a rock star, I don't know.

    • Jill Wagner: I'm a pretty tough chick and I was raised by my father in North Carolina. He is an ex-marine and he is tough. I consider myself an 'All American Girl'; up front and a very honorable person. That was just instilled in me because of my family, and that is just who I am.

    • Jill Wagner: The whole thing of stardom is kind of weird to me. Before I moved to LA, I don't really know what I did. I must have been outside playing with my dogs or something. I didn't really go watch movies; I didn't have a US Weekly or a Star Magazine; I really didn't care what those people did. Now it's like I am in that environment and I know that people have Googled me. It is very flattering, but at the same time I think, "Oh my God, what are they going to find out?" I am trying to think if I had done anything bad. I don't want my dad knowing.

    • Jill Wagner: Peter O' Fallon, who is the director of the pilot [for Blade: The Series] really pulled for me. You know, I don't have hardly any experience. This is my first scripted role. It is a big difference from the Lincoln Mercury commercials.

    • Jill Wagner: My whole research on vampires is this: When I was really little and up until the present time I have had these recurring vampire dreams. I have probably had six since I moved out to LA. I remember when I was five years old telling my grandmother that I was having these dreams. It was weird though, because in these dreams I was never afraid of these vampires. The vampire presence was never a bad one, just very intriguing.

    • Jill Wagner: I wasn't a comic book girl growing up. I used to play a lot of video games. I played Tomb Raider every night when my brother went to work. I would usually play it until 3AM. I would have dreams that I was Lara Croft. I would kick ass all night and get up ready for school the next morning.

    • Jill Wagner: I don't watch myself because I think my voice sounds weird on screen. My voice is so low on screen. Most of the time when you hear a girl scream it is like from a B movie where the scream is high pitched. When I scream it is different because my voice can't get that high.

    • Jill Wagner: I've always been around guns. I was raised by my father and he has always had a gun collection and he shoots skeet. When I was like 13 years old I'd go with him to shoot skeet. I don't go hunting, I don't kill stuff. It's always been with clay pigeons and targets and stuff like that but I feel very comfortable holding a gun. It is a stress release thing for me.

    • Jill Wagner (about her character "Krista" in "Blade The Series"): Krista started out being from Detroit. Then I went to the audition with this accent and they rewrote her being from North Carolina instead of Detroit.

    • Jill Wagner: I get really nervous especially with the whole red carpet thing. The worst thing about it is just standing there and all these people are taking your picture and I am just thinking "Why are you taking my picture?" I'm just Jill Wagner.
