  • Quotes

    • Tracy: (on doing love scenes) Actors always says doing loves scenes are technical and far from romantic but that doesn't seem to resonate for people who aren't in the business. They don't fully understand that. I describe it to my husband, which I think is the best description, as clinical. It's like going to a doctor and he touches you - it's not sexual, it's clinical. To me, love scenes are like going to the doctor. My husband doesn't watch the show at all just because there's just no point in having that visual in your mind. It's just sadistic.

    • Tracy: (on why she never had her ears pierced) My mom didn't want to hurt me - and neither did I. I'm not a Christmas tree, so don't hang ornaments on me!
