“I’ve often thought, and I’ve said this before whenever asked, ‘where do you think Zoe is, how do you think that story would continue?’ and I always say I was pregnant in Serenity. I was pregnant, and I was pregnant with Wash’s child. I do think that somewhere there is this beige, curly red-haired child running around the verse.” - Gina Torres
“In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen. I’m invincible. I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner.’ That’s something that I was really conscious of during training. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.” Jen Lawrence. I respect this.
I’m impossibly tall. When they find it hard to pair you up with the opposite sex, then what’s left for a woman? Either you’re the ball-buster or the not-so-attractive girlfriend standing by the lead. I mean, traditionally not so attractive. ... When you fall within the cracks, you thank God for sci-fi, because they’ll give you a gun, and they’ll say, ‘Go over there and conquer that world. You kick some ass, girl!" Gina Torres (on working on Firefly) :D
