  • Quotes

    • Lauren Lane: The trouble is memories are short - when you've had success with one thing, that's all people think you can do.

    • Lauren: (when asked if her daughter wanted to act, if she would encourage her to) I try to expose her to many kinds of work in ways that cast them in just as exciting a light as acting.

    • Lauren Lane: (about the cast of the Nanny and how it affected her life) This show has become like a family and we'll all miss that. But I am looking forward to doing other things.

    • Lauren: (about her character, C.C. on The Nanny and the relationship with Niles) The show's built on a formula which includes sexual tension. When it suddenly goes, you have to find another way of giving viewers what they want. I think that's why they are playing with the relationship between Niles and C.C.

    • Lauren: (about the end of The Nanny) We had no idea the end was coming. It was a shock to everyone. Then we had to go right out afterwards and perform and be funny.

    • Lauren Lane: What I like in "CC Babcock" is that she's so over the top; in her own world, like a rock in the surf, but nevertheless she's completely insecure; never gets what she wants. But it's a lot of fun playing someone who tries, in mischievous ways, to get what she wants. Besides, she's a clown. I mean, of all characters, she's the one you can get the most out of.

  • Summary.

    Lauren Lane is a very good actress, as CC in the Nanny she really was wonderful, i\'d have like to see more movies or series in which she played, but I never did. I\'m sure it was good too. And I\'m not surprise to learn that she is know teaching in university, she really seems to be a clever person and a cultured one too.
