Top Ten Favorite Fictional Characters
↳ 9. Ann Perkins (Parks and Recreation)
Amy is like the best camp counselor ever: She sets the tone of the show, which is collaborative and playful. I know it sounds corny, but it’s just true.
My favorite scenes are when Amy gets to go off the cuff and be the virtuosic improviser that she is. When they do the jump cut scenes, it’s usually because she has done so many funny things with a scene that they want to be able to use it all.
Because we are so close, I demand that Amy give me advice. She’s really good at it. She always encourages me to stay present and true to myself. She is my life coach and my emotional midwife."
Look, I have parents who have accomplished so much. I have a father who came from nothing and conquered the world. The last thing I’m going to do is sit here and spend his money and try to look pretty. That’s not interesting to me at all. I’ve been acting professionally for 15 years, and I’ve had to prove myself. Someone may think, Oh, everything was handed to her, but it doesn’t really work that way. The nice thing about comedy in particular is that it’s a meritocracy. Funny people aren’t going to have you around because you know other people. You have to make people laugh. (x)
