    "I like the challenge of having to evoke emotion from the audience by using only one tool. The tone, the pitch, cadence of my voice. It's really fun," she said of voicing the iconic pot-stirrer.

    "Gossip Girl, the new show, is really cool because it talks all about how social media has changed us, and it's more risqué because it's on HBO Max, and there's a twist at the end of Episode 1 that's really different. So that's fun."
