Watch is all about television's hottest shows. Tell us about your character on Black Monday.

I play Tiff Georgina who is the fiancée of Andrew Rannells' character Blair. Tiff is hell on wheels and, frankly, abusive. She is heiress to the Georgina Jeans fortune and never met an '80s clip-on earring she didn't take off dramatically when answering the phone.

Why did you decide to become an actor?

I don't remember deciding. I think when I was about three years old people told me I started talking about storytelling and performing. I always said I was going to write and act.

Most unusual or interesting place you've been recognized?

At a lot of baggage carousels and at piano bars.

What's your hidden talent?

My hidden talent is gossip. I'm also writing a book of comedic essays that I'm really excited about.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully I will be spending time with my two wonderful sons and continuing to get the opportunity to act and write.
