  • Has appeared two years running with various cast members at the Castle panel at San Diego Comic Con in 2010 and 2011.
  • When the decision was made to kill off Ruben Santiago-Hudson's character Captain Roy Montgomery, she said: "I said to one of the ADs who had worked on Lost, I said, 'I could never have done that show.' Because every week somebody was getting killed off. We're a very close-knit group and it is a family. I know everybody says that about their show, but it was very emotional when Ruben left. I'm hoping there's going to be a way for him to come back."[1]
