In an interview with Buzzfeed, Fumero talked about what she loved the most about playing the character: “I love that she doesn’t apologize for who she is. She’s a nerd and she’s emotional, but she’s also really smart, really capable, and really good at being a cop. All the things that on other shows, or even in life, that we tend to apologize for, she’s just like, “No, this is me. I’m a dork. When I’m a dork, I’m gonna do a dork dance. Deal with it.” She’s so unapologetic about her “flaws” or things that would be perceived as weakness. I love that about Amy, and I feel like I’ve learned from her.”
