YOU HAVE SOME PRETTY RACY—AND REVEALING—SEX SCENES.

Those scenes are shot very carefully, and there’s never skin-on skin-contact. Everyone is wearing modesty patches, and you choreograph well in advance. But yeah, it was pretty shocking even for me watching that.

BUMMED YOU’RE NOT IN ANY OF THE FIGHT SCENES LIKE YOU WERE ON XENA?

God, no! I always detested it. Sitting, popping grapes in my mouth and giving a thumbs up or a thumbs down is perfect.

ARE YOU STILL SINGING?

Yes. I would love to go back to Broadway. I played Rizzo in Grease, and by golly it’s time again.
