Martin, I don't know if you remember, but you gave me rosary beads before a concert I was flying off to, from the set. I want you to know I still have them, I still carry them with me, and I think of you often.
My question is: do you miss me?

I think, for me, being onstage, and what made me break character TERRIBLY - unprofessional, completely, but it could not be helped. We had "Verilights" which are movable lights - and for some reason, a group of them got stuck on a section of the audience. So about 20 people were in a spotlight, and they were VERY uncomfortable. So seeing them be uncomfortable, made me laugh SO HARD - they wanted to see WICKED, and yet all we can see is them... yeah, that to me... I laughed, and everybody on stage was laughing so hard too... not professional.
But delightful nonetheless.

First of all, thank you for all of what you said. "Fathers and Daughters" is in my top 5 tracks on "Coming Home." When you watch the DVD, my own father is sitting in the second row, and singing it to him gets me a little choked up, and you can hear that.
I have been lucky to have not been typecast. All the roles I've played are very different. The different things my voice does, vocally, has been helpful in my career- opera, to musical theater, to country - is all in my new DVD, and my concert work. I'm not necessarily known for dramatic work, but I did a Broadway show that was a darker role for me, and I enjoy those too, because that's a part of life. Just because I'm a basically happy person does not mean that I don't have dark times, I don't battle depression - and as an artist, music and acting is a way to show that in different roles, so yea, I always look for those kind of roles too.
BUT comedy is the most challenging, it's the hardest thing. And it's what I'm known for, so ... that's a big part of who I am.
We never met until the junket! The movie was over. We did completely hit it off. I'm a huge fan of his, just separately from RIO 2. FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS- I knew about that show before EVERYBODY else, and then I get to be with him in a movie, so I was really hoping we would hit it off, which we did! I send him love to New Zealand! I can't wait to see his new movie, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. I think he's... on par with Christopher Guest. They are genius parody actors. He's a genius. I loved that movie. I was so proud to be in that movie.
I'm still recovering. I had a head injury, and I have a bad neck. Head injuries are interesting, because you can't really explain... why time isn't the same. Looking at a script is different for me now. I have photographic memory, and it's coming back, but imagine being unplugged, and then plugged back in. Never had anxiety before. I'm very transparent here, I think it's important for people to know. So I'm dealing with anxiety for the first time in my life. And so personally, that has made me sad. I never had that. I used to think that people who had anxiety, it was possibly made-up? I didn't have that empathy.
I do now.
It changed my view on what's important in life. I love what I do. I can't do anything else, I don't know HOW to do anything else. But really what's important are my family and my friends... and being the kind of artist I want to. And sometimes that doesn't mean taking the big money jobs, sometimes it means no money, but thankfully, I'm in a position to get to do that. It was... a scary, the scariest thing that's ever happened to me.
Also, I downplayed it a lot when it happened.
Well, I know that Brian Fuller would very much like to do a musical version of PUSHING DAISIES. And I would very much like for him to do that. He's said that publicly, and we've talked about it and i just want to encourage him to do that, because none of our cast got closure. We didn't find out that we were cancelled until Christmas, and so we were all out for Christmas break and didn't get to say goodbye. It was a cult favorite, and I'm probably the most proud of that. I liked playing the underdog. I liked playing the woman who was in love with a man that she couldn't have. I don't think there's a person alive who doesn't understand loving a person they can't have - maybe they're emotionally unavailable, married, in love with somebody else - who knows the reason, but that was a good part. Olive Snook, I loved her. Plus she was a terrible waitress.

I would basically want to say to him that I miss him. And that we've never had a better President!

First of all, I'm glad they are going to do a movie. I figured they'd do it someday - I don't know when it's planned for. I mean of course i'd love to be involved - it is a huge part of my life. I don't know who I'd play - I'd be interested in Madame Morrible at this point - it gives a bigger audience a chance to see the show, and that makes me happy, whether I'm involved or not.
