I'm having a great time. I get to travel and see the world. And yeah, I'll have a family, because I don't want to miss out on that amazing experience, but it's not defining who I am.

I'm an actress, and I write, and I produce stuff. I have a guitar, and I have my knitting stuff. I have a lot of things going on; I love to not ever put all my energy into one thing fully.

After I've knitted for a while, I feel like I just woke up from a nap. And what's awesome is that then you have a product! You have something you made with your hands!

Any time you get to play or dress differently or look differently, as an actress, that's incredibly exciting.

I feel really fortunate that I've been given a lot of roles that were very different from each other. For me, variety is the key. I don't want to play the same thing over and over again.

There are a lot of times when Jessica Jones is alone in her house, and there's no dialogue. She's rough around the edges, so getting to spend that time with her and see her be vulnerable and process the weight of her world is what makes the character so likable.

When I go home to Pennsylvania, my cousins who live in small towns and are twenty-three with kids are like 'Krysten, when are you getting married?' 'When are you having a kid?' Honestly, those aren't the most important things to me right now.

It's really hard to sell a script, and it's even harder to get a movie made. It just almost never happens.

My favorite part of 'Jessica Jones' is... all of it.

It's hard to fight in high heels or even jeans that are too tight. You can't kick in skinny, skinny jeans.

I'm not always the first person to run out and see something I'm in. I don't know; for me, that's not why I did it. I did it because I wanted to act. I don't really think about the end result. I don't feel like I have to see it - for me, it already happened.

When I'm breaking in a character like Jessica Jones, I have this amazing opportunity to create her backstory. It's all of the work that happens before I'm ever on camera... Writing 'Bonfire' was like doing all of that fun stuff; it was like 300 pages of prep work.

I'm very into dresses, shoes, and makeup.

I just sort of choose to see the good in things, and I choose to - I don't know - look on the bright side, as cheesy as it sounds.

I think it's important to be flexible and free, and you can't be free and spontaneous if you don't know what you're doing.

After 'Jessica Jones' came out, I started hearing firsthand from a lot of women who were so inspired by the character, who felt represented, who felt like watching Jessica on screen helped them in their own lives. Women are devouring content like that because everybody is complicated; not everybody is one thing.

I was always loud and obnoxious and giggly and funny.

My parents actually wanted me to join the service.

I've always lived out of a suitcase. I was in a new city every three months. When I was a model, I traveled the world, and as an actor you're traveling from movie set to movie set. So I've never been in one place long enough for anything super-bad to happen.

Yarn, patterns, and needle sizes have come such a long way since your grandmother's afghans. Creatively, there is just so much to get into, so much to play with. It's an amazing way to turn inward and get off your phone.

I'm a weirdo. I don't leave the house unless I have to.

With 'Jessica Jones,' I'm in almost every frame of the show.

When you go to Marvel, they lock you in a room with the scripts; they really are that secretive.

I kept telling people, 'I really want to do something like 'Breaking Bad,'' and then people would remind me, 'Krysten, you were on 'Breaking Bad!''

I have such a crush on Tony Robbins and his passion, empathy, and sheer talent.

I was totally picked on, but look at me now! I was definitely picked on by boys and girls. I was really lanky and skinny and the boys would say, 'Turn sideways and stick out your tongue, you look like a zipper.'

I love Tina Fey because she acts and she writes and she's hilarious and does a lot of different things.

If you see a dog in a hot car, and you think that he's in danger or that he's been there for a while, it's good to speak up... Go into whatever businesses it's parked outside of, and just raise awareness about it.

If someone says, 'I love 'Jessica Jones!'' I just say, 'Thanks, I love you back!'

I have a new little stray dog that I've had for about a month now. His name is Mikey Mohawk - he's this little terrier with a natural Mohawk. My friend found him hit by a car on Pico Boulevard.

I've always been very positive and very resilient.

I'm definitely scared by commitment.

My Instagram is basically all knitting, my dog, and a little bit of 'The Defenders.'

Jessica Jones is such a great part, and I do serious work on it. I feel really creatively fulfilled.

I am sarcastic and dry, but I also have a pretty huge zest for life.

I didn't want to play the wife of some guy my dad's age.

I love 'House of Cards,' I love 'Bloodline,' I love 'Orange is the New Black,' so I had written on my refrigerator that I was looking for 'groundbreaking television on Netflix.'

The most rewarding thing is having a job that you love. It's not a luxury that everyone in this world enjoys.

I'm from a small town, a farm, a hundred acres.

Thematically, I like playing with the ideas of stuff that you try to bury, and you think will go away, but instead you carry it with you until it becomes crippling. And sometimes you have to look back and deal with some stuff in order to truly move forward.

I'm a creative person. I love to write, I love to act, I love to perform, I love to create things with my hands, so I do all of these things that are kind of like hobbies in a way. They're things that I love, so it's not like a work-life balance; it's just a work-life marriage.

I've been bouncing around from comedy to drama and TV and film.

If they want to do a 'Defenders 2,' I'm in.

I don't normally do shoots in bikinis - I'm just not that kind of girl. But for 'Maxim' I was like, 'Bring it on!' I wanted to wear the higher heels and the skimpier bathing suit. I figured I'd go for it!

I knew I could always work harder and be better and show I'm more prepared. I had a whole science to, like, how you have to arrive 17 minutes early to something. If you're 20 minutes early, that means you're too eager, but 17 minutes gives you time to, like, settle, sign in, use the ladies' room, have some water, and get comfortable.

There are different audiences out there, and everyone has different tastes of what they want. And it's a good thing because otherwise, there wouldn't be enough stuff to go around.

I try to drink a lot of water and always moisturize. When my skin gets cranky, I use Proactiv to keep it clear. That stuff really works.

I didn't know how to throw a punch - why would I? Who knows how to throw a punch? Now I do it all the time, and it makes me feel strong.

A lot of actresses start out modeling because it's a great way to sort of get your foot in the door. That's all it is, though. They open the door, and you have to walk through it.
