Of learning about her Emmy nomination, she said, "I was worried that I've gotten the call time wrong for my appearance on Franklin & Bash before I saw that it said "Congratulations!, I'm stunned, I'm still so shocked. I'm so honored.She submitted the scenes where Kristina was kidnapped and learned that the man who was holding her was Joe Scully, Jr. (Richard Steinmetz).
