Robin Tunney - Personal Quotes


"I was always brought up to say please and thank you and always tell the truth, and people were saying, 'Oh my God, what's going to happen with your character next year (on "Prison Break" (2005))?' and I wasn't allowed to say, so I felt really guilty because I was lying to all these people, including my neighbours. You know, the character had its run, and I was really happy to be part of a show that was so successful and that people loved so much, but there was really nothing else for her to do".
