"We have been watching her [Maura Isles] discover all of this stuff about her life. So, I think, there is something deeply — I don’t want to say sad, but it could be if she allowed it to go there, and yet, she is such a positive person. She wakes up and the glass is half full. I think it is because she knows a lot and she chooses to live in that world instead of something else."
