CRIMINAL MINDS: GREAT INTERVIEW WITH KIRSTEN VANGSNESS
Criminal Minds: Wonderful interview with Kirsten Vangsness, Penelope Garcia on Criminal Minds, in iF Magazine:
CRIMINAL MINDS is one of the darkest of TV’s procedurals, dealing as it does with a team of FBI profilers who track serial killers in every episodes, hoping to capture the homicidal culprits before they kill again. The main regular source of brightness on the CBS hit, now in its fifth year, is colorful computer researcher Penelope Garcia, played with great warmth and panache by Kristen Vangsness. Vangsness, known for her work on the Los Angeles theatre scene, took what began as a small recurring role and invested her with so much spark that she soon became indispensable to the teams both on and off-screen.
iF MAGAZINE: Coming into fifth season, was anybody worried about the renewal, or was everyone pretty confident?
