Adrianne Palicki Quotes:
“When I lived in New York for those three months, I needed to see a play every week, because eventually that’s where I want to end up.”[on Supergirl/Kara El Zor on Smallville] “I think the character of “Kara” on Smallville (2001) was a little different from the one in the comic because her motive is different. She’s not evil by any means, whatsoever, but she does come to Clark for a specific reason. She doesn’t really have a sense of right or wrong; the morality isn’t there.”
“My psyche has been very impacted in that there are moments where you’re, like, ‘Do I really want to do this?’ Though I know in my heart this is what I really want to do, the question was: would I enjoy the process itself?”
“I would love to do Broadway, I don’t think there’s anything more amazing than theatre. Okay, Supergirl is number one. Maybe I could be Supergirl on Broadway! That would be perfect.”
“In all honesty, it’s unbelievable to get these roles. You work so hard when you’re trying to be cast and to get a guest role on a low budget show would be a dream come true, but to be able to do these two shows and play these characters, there are no words. I am so lucky to have done them.”[on John Woo] “We had a fight scene that was amazingly well-choreographed, but then Mr. Woo came in and said, ‘Very good, but do this’, and he goes in there and starts fighting. It’s just amazing to see John Woo kick alien ass! It’s not something you get to see very often.”
