 You know, there was a lot of Rita hatred when I was on the show so it’s interesting to see this outpouring of love. My Twitter blew up during the Dexter premiere, with people giving Rita the honor that she deserved. She was an amazing character to play. It was very touching to me to have that response, because sometimes you don’t know that people care that much. When I found out I was going to be leaving Dexter, I wanted to find a strong female character, a really active woman, Basically the exact opposite of Rita. And I’m so fortunate to find No Ordinary Family. It really was the strongest female character to be found during pilot season.
