  • Quotes

    • Magda: I don't like or dislike mainstream work, it's just that the variety in the roles you play can be restricted. Like in Caprica, there were no rules, you couldn't do wrong. The more you experiment, the greater it is.

    • Magda: (On her Kyle XY character, Andy Jensen)
      It's a character that changed my life. I learned a lot from that chick.

    • Magda: (On her favorite movie genre)
      I think I enjoy anything that is different. Because it scares the bejeezus out of me. Like with Every Second Counts, I didn't know I could do it because I'd never done a western before and Kyle XY was something I was never sure I could do, It was the same thing with Caprica. Every time it scares me, but I'm glad I do because I learn something about myself and my characters.

    • Magda: I read all the time! One of my favorite books is Veronika Decides to Die. It's kind of crazy because I always wanted to play Veronica and now they're making a movie from the book and Sarah Michelle Geller is playing Veronica.

    • Magda: (On her first acting gig)
      It was on Jeremiah, with Luke Perry, Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Jason Priestley. I was in heaven! I was 16 and was in love with these boys. I got to shoot a machine gun. I got to do a crying scene. It was my first part!
