    Excellent interview. Her bit about her scene with Sylar being displaced to a much earlier part of the show was a nice bit of insight into the show.

    Cristine is hilarious. Loved how she was messin with ya’ll. Such a good actress she had me believing there really was an armed guard. I think she really has powers of persuasion.
