STANA KATIC: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I auditioned about nine times and then it came down to myself and another girl, and we did a screen test. And it was one of those things where I was travelling back and forth from a place where I was living which was about an hour, hour and half away and I came in and I brought the wrong shirt, I brought this long tunic top. And this sound really girly but eventually it will make sense. I got in, hair and make-up does their deal and everything and I’m like, I’ll just figure it out when we’re in the studio. So I try to tuck it, try to make it work and it’s not working and I turn to the make-up lady and go “hey, got a pair of scissors?” And she’s like, “yeah, sure, here.” And I walk outside and there’s Nathan who’s my co-star, he plays Richard Castle on the show. He’s having a cup of coffee and I’m like, “hey, what you doin’,” and he’s like “nothing much just getting a cup of coffee, do you wanna run lines?” I’m like, “no! But speaking of lines can you cut a straight line?” And he’s like, “um…I can’t promise anything, but what are we talking about?” I go, “here’s a pair of scissors, here’s my shirt, I need you to cut it shorter.” He gave me this fantastic look and he just started at it and he cut my shirt all short and proper so I could tuck it in, producers came out in the middle of it and I got the job.
Words hurt.. Jane has been sending Lisbon letters for 2 years and he felt as though she was still part of his life. He didn’t want to lose her. When she tells him this, I could honestly see how hurt he was. The way Lisbon looks at him after she says it and realizes it hurt him breaks my heart. He simply nods at her remark. I might have gotten choked up a bit…
Johanna is incredibly perceptive, sarcastic and brash. She speaks her mind, regardless of the consequences, or who she hurts. While Johanna has a very hard exterior, she definitely understands the greater good of the districts and would lay down her life for freedom.
What makes you think I want to work with you again? Your are difficult and exhausting and maybe I don’t want to put the rest of my life on hold to be your sidekick. Have you ever even thought about that?
