Elizabeth Reaser describes how her character, Esme, influenced her over time:
"I really appreciate Esme's sweetness and her kindness and her generosity of spirit -- and her ability to wear heels and dresses 24 hours a day. I have tried to incorporate [that] a little. My preference would be to be in sweatpants. I do think being Esme for so many years has sort of influenced my ability to throw on a pair of heels and a pencil skirt, but I think that's about it that I've gotten. I would love to think that she's made me a better person, but I think that's wishful thinking."
