“As a woman who has a sort of high-powered job myself, I know how complicated a relationship can be even if it’s with somebody you’re working with,” she told AccessHollywood.com during a summer set visit. “Your hours are long, the stresses are crazy and so I kinda wanted to see how the ‘Covert Affairs’ writers would imagine that.”

“I think it’s also an interesting thing to explore especially if your partner is also in a high-powered stressful job and how do you kind of manage that and keep it romantic and spontaneous,” she added.

“Covert Affairs” airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on USA.
