You’ve played very different relationships, did you have a favorite?
“I spent more time with Sarah and I got to know Sarah very, very well. And her and I worked really well together. It’s so funny because Sarah and I.. we got along really well on set, but we never hung out off set. She was always doing her thing, She was working out her butt or she was with her boyfriend. So when we came on set we just worked well, and I think it’s because we both liked to get through the day pretty quickly. We used to say, “Don’t fuck up!” “No, you don’t fuck up!“ So I’d have to say Carmen, only because I got to know Sarah over two years and she was so much fun.”
Kate Moennig as Lena in Ray Donovan
‘Lena handles Ray’s office and research for his operation. She is a no-nonsense lesbian who is both sexy and tough. She is an asset to Ray both in and out of the office.’ (x)
“When I was growing up I was certainly a tomboy. I could never have imagined sitting on the grass playing with a tea set, I’d rather have climbed a tree, I would always get into trouble for wearing motorcycle boots with my school uniform. I’d say ‘I won’t do it again.’ Then I’d turn up the next day doing the same thing.” - KATE MOENNIG
I’m guessing Kate isn’t a Belieber.. ha!
KATE MOENNIG “I liked the way my character, Shane, was first introduced. You get introduced to her through this sexual action, and I thought that was so cool and just kind of summed up what she enjoys and who she is, to a certain extent. She’s a complete sexual being and the great thing is that she doesn’t apologize for it. It’s just who she is. We rarely see women be able to do that on television”
