Nancy Travis quotes
- To wait for hours to buy a train ticket or to see a doctor is accepted as a normal way of doing things. Privacy is not a great preoccupation, and this is a very crowded country.
- I love zoo sanctuaries.
- The alarming thing in China is the almost total absence of primary care. Even in cities, there are no independent doctors' offices or neighborhood clinics, so people have to go to the hospital for every health care need.
- I wish my real life could be as simple and scripted as it is on television.
- The Bill Engvall Show (2007) is a comedy about a middle-class family in the Midwest. It's a great family show to watch if you want to laugh and unwind.
- On the 100 episode of Last Man Standing (2011): It is very surreal that we hit 100 episodes because it feels as if it flew by. It doesn't feel old. It still feels new. That's due largely to this group, the cast and Tim. I still think we could do another 100.
- I want to do a show about a woman who's juggling a career with a relationship.
- I really enjoy doing sitcom television. It allows me to stay in Los Angeles and spend more time with my husband and kids.
- On her favorite episode of Last Man Standing (2011): I don't know if there is a specific moment that I could say, 'This episode or that episode.' Frankly, what ends up happening is you get so involved in an episode shooting and then it ends and you can't remember a single thing about it. Look at the photographs on the wall over there of the different seasons. It was hard to remember any of those episodes.
- I've probably said that in every feature I've been in I've been repeatedly defined as the girlfriend or wife.
With a long list of acting credits to her name, Nancy Travis surely makes it to the list of actresses with a significant impact on the Hollywood industry. The thespian is truly a representation of talent at its best.
