On her love of sharks and working on causes that support sharks and conservation: “We’re on a path to eliminating all sharks, and media portrays them in such a negative light. The movie The Shallows infuriated me. Blake Lively is talented and beautiful and amazing. But the film portrayed sharks in a way they don’t behave. The fear is unjustified. Legislation needs to change to protect animals. If one nation like the U.S. or China were to change their policies, that would be a huge win, and it would set an example for other countries to follow suit.”

On her new sitcom Fam: “I wasn’t looking to do a sitcom, and I realized how little I knew about sitcoms. I was a huge fan of Friends and Will & Grace and Seinfeld, but never watched them with a critical eye. I didn’t know they were filmed in front of a live audience. My manager and agents said it’s basically a play you put on in a week, and it’s a challenging medium to do. I’ve always loved a challenge—if it scares me, that’s an indication I should do it.”
