Tanya: Oh, I get it, I'm a loser. I take my clothes off and cry in front of all my enemies.
(about doing independent films)
Tanya: I don't want to have anybody watch me. Sure I won't get rich, but no one will see the movies either. I'll have fun with none of the pressure.
Tanya: I think I went insane. I was ridiculously paranoid because I had the most insufferably frustrating level of celebrity. It wasn't at all anything I could get sympathy for. I wasn't Kate Winslet. I was just a little TV girl but I felt people were staring at me. In Toronto, people would literally hit me and tell me to get them a muffin, and laugh". [This refers to the success she found on the TV show "The Newsroom" (1996), where her character's boss was always sending her to find the right kind of muffin.]
