    Some snippets:

    CNN:
    What was your initial reaction when you learned what Carol was going to have to do this season?

    McBride: It was surprising to me that Carol was going in this direction, absolutely. But it also made a great deal of sense to me that they would take her in this direction. First of all it's a very interesting arc for this character, considering that she's lost her daughter; she carries so much responsibility for that, and also (she's) trying to navigate this world.


    CNN: Is this the most challenging acting role you've ever had?

    McBride: By far. This has been by far the most difficult, and certainly the longest-running. The most challenging and rewarding, for all the same reasons.


    CNN: How do you react to the show's massive popularity?

    McBride: I'm constantly amazed by the amount of different types of people that are aware of the show. After the episode with the girls, a gentleman who is 73 years old -- he said, "I've never written a piece of fan mail ever, but I had to write how much I enjoyed that episode." It touched me so much.

    When I think of how far-reaching this show is, and how big it is, it's like trying to fathom the beginning of time, and I have to stop.

    I love that she keeps getting well deserved attention from fans, critics and the media for The Grove.

    Her answers are always so thoughtful and she's always so sensitive to the fans' reactions and feelings. She's never like "get over yourself" or something. She's always graceful and always tries to understand the motives and feelings of a character not every actor is like that unfortunately. I love that even she says she didn't expect Carol to get the K&D storyline but that she understood the sentiment(Kind of like what everyone else is feeling). Nice that she says Carol was the role of her life until now and the story of the 73 year old guy who wrote a fan letter is awesome :D

    I really like Carol (no surprise to people on this board) but I think I may love MMB. She comes across as a grounded, intelligent, compassionate person.

    Or she's such a good actress, she's convinced me of that.

    Thanks for posting this Q&A, PalmettoMatt.

    The more I learn about MMB the more I like her. When others describe her in interviews, the same word comes up over and over ... real. In the fake, inauthentic, "let's have lunch" world of entertainment and celebrity, someone calling you "real" is the highest form of compliment, in my eyes.

    I really like MMB interviews she doesn't troll the hell out of fans and her answers sound like she actually thinks about the questions asked.
