      I just wanted to say how much I love Rekha Sharma and her portrayal of Tory. Tory has grown to become my Favorite character on the show and I was one of the few who thought Tory was awesome long before her shocking revelation in the S3 finale. I know that this is mostly because of Rekha and her wonderful performance.
      Awesome interview, Rekha’s interviews are always fun to listen to, she has such a great way about her.
