Can you tell us about the TV series Army Wives and your role as Roxy LeBlanc?
Army Wives is a TV show base on a real book by Tanya Biank called: Under the Sabers and basically talks about the life on the home front. Army Wives shows the unnatural friendships that accur on the post. Just because everyone is united by the fact that they have family members overseas and they are not sure when they are coming back. Roxy my character is a sassy bartender with two kids with two separate guys. She has kind of a lot of unfortunate circumstances in her life. Roxy meets Trevor, who is her husband at the beginning of the show for seventeen days, so it is a very new romance. Roxy sacrifices everything and picks everything up to where she is. And basically the first series tracks this very new marriage and these two people who are in love in an almost a fairy tale way.

She is close to me in a lot of ways. We are both very opinionated but we also have a very good heart, she is a really good person and she really wants to do well for the people she loves.
