was the odd one."
"As soon as I read the script I knew it was pretty special. The creator of the
show asked what I thought of the writing as a whole. I told him I had no idea because I'd only read my part. He laughed and
told me I'd got the job. He thought my answer was completely Gabrielle “on how she got the part as Gabrielle Solis

about being a woman is the power we have over men."

you. I've definitely been pleasantly surprised by my choices and I've always had plenty of choice."
