Congratulations on White Collar being renewed for a fifth season. What is it like inhabiting the same character for that long?
I’m incredibly grateful that we’re still getting the chance to tell our stories. If you’d told me five years ago that I’d be on a show that would last this long, and still enjoy doing it, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. It feels like it’s only been a year or two. The most important thing for me is whether or not you still have fun doing it, and thanks to the writers and co-stars, there’s not a day at work where I’m not having a great time.
You showed off your singing chops when you appeared on Glee. Have you ever seen yourself as a recording artist? Would you like to continue doing musicals in the future?
I feel like singing is something that you really have to commit to in terms of practice if you ever want to really do it well. I love singing. I sing around the house, and on set all the time. I loved recording as well. If I ever do it again, I’ll make sure that I’ve given the practice necessary to make it as fun as it could possibly be. I started writing songs when I was 8 years old, and have been doing it ever since. But I’m not sure they’ll ever see the light of day. Maybe they were just a form of therapy for me. A way to make sense of the world around me.
We saw a lot of videos and projects that fans created for your birthday last October. What crosses your mind when you see those videos?
I don’t cry a lot, but I’m not gonna lie, I cried when I saw the fan video from my birthday last year. I’m so blown away by the fans, and so grateful. They’ve stuck by me through thick and thin, and that means more to me than I could ever express in words. At times I feel like they believe in me more than I believe in myself, and that’s bolstered me through lots of stormy weather. When you’ve been doing a job for four years, a lot of times you have to dig deep to stay as motivated as you want to. The fans are always there as that motivation for me. No matter how tired or stressed I am, I will always give my best for them.
