Don’t think your dreams don’t come true, because they do. You’d better be careful what you wish for. And I truly and honestly – one day I am doing the ‘Beaver’ show and I said, ‘This is the show I have always wanted to do.’
I feel that I can’t do certain things that have sent to me, scripts, because I think that really – I’ve been June Cleaver for so many years, because we went back, you know, and we did – 20-year hiatus we had – and we went back and made 105 new ones. And so I really feel very strongly that there are certain things I won’t do.
I have to tell you that June Cleaver had a job in ‘The New Leave It to Beaver.’ She did. Sure, she was a council woman. She went to work. She wasn’t a sit-at-home grandma. She went out, got a job.
People stopped me on the street and said ‘I can’t live up to you.’ Of course, they’re referring to June Cleaver.
Yes, I always played the bad woman. I actually did.
