I play a scientist in a futuristic world in which 99% of the men have been wiped out. As a result, the women are nearly all homosexuals and the children are cloned.
I`ve loved doing "E.R." for the quality of the writing and the great people I get to work with.
I haven`t really had that many opportunities to play "lead" so I guess I jumped at the chance. I have also never done any "sci-fi" projects and thought it might be fun.
I guess I`m not that aware of such a big fan base. I have a few core people who write me no matter what I`m doing, but I hardly have sacks of mail being dropped on my door!

I met Clinton at a benefit for teachers, which was a very good charity, but I met him for about 90 seconds, and I thought it was important to meet the leader of the free world. So I stood next to him for a photograph, and then apparently that`s all it takes.

It gets insane. The dress, the hair, the makeup...I end up always picking the dress at the last second. - On preparing for the Emmy Awards
Describing her feelings on winning Emmy awards, Bowen told an interviewer:
You are assuming everyone gets high from an award. Some of us are more like German soldiers in the trenches of the world wars. When you win the award, it is like being pulled out of the trench. And as exciting and wonderful as it is not to be in the trench, and to be recognized for what you do, it also means everyone has got a clear shot at you and that is a very frightening prospect for most of us. The first year, when I was nominated but didn’t win, I was so relieved. I can’t deny winning felt lovely and amazing and great – but now I am just worried about next year.
