Q: How did you prepare for the role as a producer in cable news?

A: I went for a morning at CNN here (in New York) and saw many shows get done. I sat in the control room. I went with our wonderful costume designer, Albert, who set the look. I went with him and said, ‘Albert we are talking about these pencil skirts and nipped-in jackets.’ I looked at this girl doing my job, and she’s in jeans and a T-shirt. She’s a normal person, but (my character) isn’t, and he said, ‘You are going to wear the pencil skirt and nipped-in jackets.’ My friend, Shaminder Nahal, does exactly this job in England.

Q: What do you like to do with your kids?

A: With my 8-year-old boy, it is very hard to try to pretend to be interested in games where you have to do Legos. I can’t do the sort of lingo you need, and he gets so cross. With the girl, I can totally get into dolls.

Q: What actors have influenced you?

A: I remember being asked that question in an audition, and the writer was sitting opposite me, and the director, and my mind went blank. I said Melanie Griffith. Those comic actors always appealed to me. They are heartbreaking and vulnerable and delightful about how they perform. In the same vein, Dianne Wiest. Her performance in ‘Hannah and her Sisters’ -- if I could ever do anything in my life that is halfway as fantastic, I would be fulfilled.
