Kate Moennig didn't know she was a lesbian when she was cast as Shane in The L Word



-didn't realize that she was gay until she started getting into filming season 1 and thought “Now this makes sense to me. This seems like my tribe.”
-her costar Leisha Hailey in particular helped her realize her attraction to women by calling her out on it while filming.
-was offered a magazine cover to "come out" on during the l word but didn't see the point saying “Why on Earth would I do that? To help you sell a magazine and for you to take credit in getting me to say it first?”
-people shouldn't conflate her with Shane
-her irl wife reminds her of Bette (lol)
-she claims it was hard to sympathize with her character after she kept messing up over and over again; especially after leaving carmen at the alter.
-says that Sarah Shahi is "a little piece of magic in human form."
