A: "Frasier" was an extraordinary thing to do, but this has a completely different dynamic. The whole thing is like being a kid again. It's been amazing for me.
Q: What's your take on the move of your police drama "Flashpoint" from CBS to ION?
A: I'm just happy to have the show keep going. It was really fun and nice to be on CBS, but it continues to have its life, and people are still watching it ... and that's enough for me.
I find that this season, the writing and the stories are the best they have been. I've really enjoyed this one the most. Jules takes a journey that kind of figures itself out by the season finale.
Q: What do you make of Jules' romance with teammate Sam?
A: David (Paetkau, who plays Sam) is like my brother. I'm really good friends with his wife, and my husband is really good friends with that family. It's always like kissing my brother, but it's fun to have other things to do on the show than running around with a gun and telling people to put their hands in the air.
Q: What do you think about "Flashpoint" having led a new surge of Canadian-American co-productions?
A: If this is the last year for "Flashpoint," I have all these other opportunities. I'm not worried about not working.
Q: Now that you, your husband and your daughter have moved to Canada, how are you finding it?
A: I truly love Toronto. I just went to L.A. recently to see friends, and I like it there, but I have no urge to move back. I just like the energy up here. I like the seasons, the culture within the city, how contained the city is ... I like it.
