[on '"Californication" (2007)'] David (Duchovny) always said the thing that drew him to the story originally was this idea that a couple met and they had 'it.' They had that thing, they had the spark. They were in love. And they lost it, destroyed it, and then tried to get it back. And couldn't. That maybe you don't get a second chance.
I think TV, I think right now, and I speak for many shows. Not just our show. That TVs now in it's zenith. It's how the 70s were for movies-the 2000's are for TV. I think it's a phenomenal time for TV and to be involved in it. And I, as you know, this show slightly preempted me that curve, but God am I glad that it worked out that way. Because I really, I didn't have much experience with TV. I had mostly done movies and some plays. So I was very lucky to end up in a show that was not only successful, but was sort of groundbreaking in its own way, or at least it pushed some boundaries!
My kids are still flourishing, it's remarkable to me. And growing and learning more and more. I did think that if perhaps the roots of the tree were gone, the branches would no longer flower, but they are. That's remarkable.
I think the difference between finding happiness, or moments of happiness, is how you choose to interpret things. That's a rather shocking responsibility. That we're responsible for our own happiness. It's not those around us.
Extraordinary things have come about since Martin's death. And I don't know if that's to compensate... it's also an attitude, it's how you look at things. It's a choice how you perceive the events of your life.
Somebody said something wonderful to me the other day, Martin's best mate, he said, 'But Tash, you talk about status quo, there is no such thing as status quo, things change all the time, and if this hasn't taught you that...
I always keep myself busy. I'm writing. Or I'm creating something. Or I'm doing stuff with the kids. I'm up incredibly early in the morning; I go to bed incredibly late at night.
Now I'm the sole breadwinner... I have to work. I have to try and work non-stop, actually, to make things work.
I think I was ambitious. I still am. A lot of the stuff that was coming my way was stuff I just didn't want to do, so it might have seemed like lack of ambition to shy away from that, but if it sticks in your throat... I just wanted to do what I wanted to do and which I thought said something.
I wanted to know whether the character was going to be 'the wife' or 'the girlfriend', which bores me to tears and is endemic. I think it's incumbent on actresses to bring something else to the part which isn't in the script.
