Carmen Rodrigues
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Improbable? Possibly. But impossible? Now that's a whole other story.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Giving my sister my stem cells, and that's just blind genetic luck, but if you can, go be a stem cell donor. You could save a life.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. People say, "My what big eyes you have!" And I say, "Yes, the better to spy on you with."

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. That Carmen Rodrigues girl. I hear she's pretty cool and looks a lot like me.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Historical? Let's just make that any character... and that would be Mr. Darcy, and I hope to say: Wow, you're even hotter than I imagined.
