Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • (on the cast of "The 4400")
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: There's some pretty sexy people on the show. Matthew Ross is pretty sexy. And Patrick Flueger is definitely very sexy. All the men are just huge sexpots.

    • (on the open doors for her career created by "The 4400")
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: Yeah, it's been good. There's lots of stuff going on and people are seeing the shows.... I haven't really played a character like this before, with a big dark side. I haven't been able to play anyone with any kind of darkness, which I have longed for! If you've seen me before it's always been light and bubbly... and relatively boring! [Laughs]

    • (when asked if "24" wanted her back)
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: I think so, yeah. In the second season it was rumored, "Oh, we might want her." but....

    • (on her small appearance on "24")
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: Oh, yeah. Totally forgettable! [Laughs] She had been raped, and the son was accused of killing her rapist.

    • (on Garrett Dillahunt's Matthew?)
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: Yes! [Sighs heavily] He was so good — such a great character and such a great actor. And he was so funny, one of the funniest men ever. And hot!

    • (on "The 4400")
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: In the beginning, I was so curious and really nervous. How do you approach this type of character? She's a woman but she's a newborn; she's powerful and learns practically at the speed of thought; she's telekinetic.

    • (on "The 4400")
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: Basically! [Laughs] They don't really reveal anything to us, except episode by episode, so we're just as curious as our audience. We read the scripts and are like, "Oh my god!"

    • (Speaking of her role on 24)
      Reporter: Is it nice to have been the kid of one of TV's most-beloved presidents?
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: It was short-lived, but it was very cool. I think they had wanted to develop that story line more, but it was such an ambitious show, especially in the first season.

    • Reporter: Did 24 ever try to get you back?
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: I think so, yeah. In the second season it was rumored, "Oh, we might want her." but....

    • ( Speaking of The 4400 )
      Reporter: How did you and Patrick Flueger get past the "ick" factor of Shawn bedding young, young Isabelle?
      Megalyn Echikunwoke: Quite easily! [Laughs]

  • Megalyn Echikunwoke who plays Isabelle Tyler on the 4400

    Megalyn Echikunwoke who plays Isabelle Tyler is one of my favorite characters in the TV drama series the 4400. From the moment she first appeared on the show I was instantly drawn to her character. At first she had this innocence about her which was fun to watch but when her dark side came out, I was like "wow", this girl can really act. Its not often we find characters who portrays a dark side with such innocence that makes the audience love that character regardless of their evil plots. She was fabulous and I hope to see her in playing more roles in upcoming movies.moreless
