Paget: (on playing Emily Prentiss in 'Criminal Minds')
They [the producers of 'Criminal Minds'] were looking to bring in a female agent who was unknown to the unit. Ed said, 'As writers we've grown complacent about who these people are, and we need to shake it up.' It's the nicest way to join a cast because my character is feeling exactly the way I'm feeling, which is, 'Please accept me, because I want to be here.' And it's just heaven. I get to dance with Mandy Patinkin in between takes, and he sings in my ear.
