Harley Jane Kozak -- Dr. Suzanne Carter (Professor of Journalism at Texas State)

Mindy said she was going to talk me into it. She said, "I'll take you out Saturday night. I have tickets, front row center for Phantom of the Opera." Well, I was the only person in the world that hadn't seen Phantom of the Opera. Halfway thru the first act I thought, I'm going to die... I can't even describe to you how much I hated this play. At intermission I said, "Mindy, if you let me go home right now and not come back for the second act, I'll do the movie." And she said, "Done." And that's how I ended up doing the movie.
