I must have been around 10 years old when, watching Newsradio religiously, first thought "I wanna be Lisa Miller". The confidence, the strenght and the power that Maura Tierney put in that character just made sense. And I wanted to be the this cutthroat reporter, just see where I wanted to go, and start walking.
Lisa Miller was completely awesome.
And the same can be said about Maura Tierney. A great actress, that can do a more dramatic and conflicted rol like she did in ER, and she still can crack you up at least 20 times per episode, like she did in Newsradio.
After all, if you can inspire a young girl to make a carrer choice by playing a part, I´ll have to say you are pretty good at what you do.
