Sandra: (On her relationship with actor Jared Padalecki) Nothing we achieve or accomplish, good or bad - it wouldn't matter if we didn't have each other to share it with. We both are very open, emotional people and I think we compliment each other perfectly. To be honest, I don't know if anyone else could deal with either one of us!
Sandra: (Commenting on her dance abilities in March 2008) I like doing choreography, but I'm just too old to pick it up like I used to do.
Sandra: I never planned on being an actress. I just moved down to Los Angeles to take a break before going to grad school after college and I fell into doing commercial work.
