Marin Ireland (whose credits include the films "I Am Legend" and "Sparrows Dance" and TV appearances on "Homeland" and "The Following") returned to Toronto after having used her "down time" wisely: Last fall, she starred in an off-Broadway play "Marie Antoinette," and for a month spent her days as an intern at the Innocence Project.
She found that entering Christine's world for real was not only instructive, but also exhilarating.
"It left me thinking I should quit acting and come to work with these people full-time — even though I barely knew how to work the fax machine," she says with a laugh.
For now, she's happy to play a passionate lawyer trying to find justice, while Goldwyn, on break from presidential mischief, presides over his saga of doing the right thing.
