She (Victoria) is extremely feminine, very evil, extremely delectable, manipulative and patronizing, which is not at all Alex (her character from Quantico). These are completely different people. Victoria is strong because she has minions. She has people who do her dirty work. She doesn’t look at how to get results, she just gets them. She doesn’t have morality. But also. . . it’s a comedy.
It wasn’t ever difficult being Victoria, it was just creating. And the joy of creating is the truest joy. I don’t enjoy being told what to do, I’m not that kind of actor, I’m a thinking actor. I need to work with people who have the ability to do that. Seth Gordon, the director, is huge a collaborator, and same with Josh Safran, for that matter, on Quantico. I’ve been very fortunate that the people I’ve worked with have been such collaborators when it comes to my characters.
