Here’s what she revealed: “If I am called ‘at the crack’, I lay out my clothes and everything I will take on set, and give myself exactly enough time to wake up, put on the coffee and take a shower. It takes me fifteen minutes and I am in the car – with my coffee! I live less than fifteen minutes away, which gives me more sleeping time! When I arrive I usually have oatmeal and fruit. It provides time release energy throughout the morning. My post shoot routine is to take my time taking off my costume and cleaning up my dressing room. I like to take off my makeup before I go and do some light stretching and let go of the day. Then I have my car ride to transition before I get home to my husband and fifteen-year-old daughter, Charlotte.”
