More recently, she played Lady Rapunzel Tremaine/Victoria Belfrey on the ABC series Once Upon a Time.
In an interview, the actress got candid about her fitness routine. She said: “I love yoga because every muscle is being toned from the moment one spreads their toes on that mat. My goal is not to target the area that might be less toned than another, my goal is to feel that during each pose, I bring awareness into each muscle, each space around each muscle, each joint, each space around each joint, and so on and so on, so that I do not neglect a single part of my whole. I am less concerned about an area of ‘imperfection,’ because I am not a professional bodybuilder, model nor trainer. What I am is imperfect. Gleefully so.”
