If a picture paints a thousand words, what are you doing in that picture?"I’m drawing myself into being and filling in the colors as I go."

"Acting was always the focus. It’s weird, I was asked as a little kid by parents’ friends, ‘What do you want to do when you grow up?’ I think I was four years old, and I said, ‘I want to be an actress.’ I always knew."
"There are a lot of elements to every woman that’s in power and one of them is that she’s vulnerable, another one is that she’s strong… and sensitive and sensual. There’s all the colours and I think that it is interesting and true to form to play with all of them." - stana katic
Success for me is something creatively inspiring and it can be anything–working with an amazing photographer, it could be music, it could be anything. It just has to be satiating creatively.
“Any woman that’s in any kind of success is so many different colors, so many different elements. And if you want to create a real woman that people really fall in love with, that your leading man really would want to be engaged with and is his muse, then let’s paint all of her, you know.” - Stana Katic
"I’m protective of the character. She’s the romantic lead, but I don’t want her objectified, especially since our audience is so heavily weighted with females. I definitely want her to be respected… She’s a great, strong cop who can walk in a room and project authority. She owns her femininity.” (x)

"Beauty comes from an internal space before anything else, and that’s the beginning of it. And then, for me personally, as I grew older, I added little elements; regiments. My personal beauty story is a glow from inside. It has to start from inside, and then it rises up like a wonderful volcano. My personal beauty story is laughing a lot.”
"I believe that everyone is responsible for their own happiness. I believe that anything is possible. Of course, you need a lot of hard work and a strong will. I am convinced that everyone - and I really mean this - is able to achieve their dreams.”
“As girls, we’re kind of taught to say ‘I’m sorry’ all the time. It’s like you walk through the door, and you’re automatically saying, ‘Sorry! Sorry. Did I step on you? I’m sorry. Did I… Did I breathe? Oh my- I’m so sorry’. I’m playing a character who never said she’s sorry. There’s something beautiful in the weathered, unapologetic stories; I love those people… They’ve got a few scars, and they’ve earned it. They’ve lived their lives.”
