Picks and Pans Review: Sounds Off
Jill Hennessy During a six-month hiatus from Crossing Jordan last fall, Jill Hennessy swapped body bags for baby bottles when she and her husband, actor Paolo Mastropietro, welcomed their first son, Marco, 7 months. Now she's back for her third season as fearless Boston medical examiner Jordan Cavanaugh.
ON HER NEW ROLE AS MOM I'm relishing it and trying to find some time to sleep. Boy, sometimes you really appreciate a good shower. You think, "Wouldn't it be great if I could have time to eat right now?" I'm so lucky because my husband loves taking care of the baby. He does everything except breastfeed, and if he could do that, he would.
ON GOING BACK TO WORK God bless the producers here because they've allowed me to bring Marco onset. So I do some scenes, I nurse him, play with him a bit. When you shoot an intense scene where you're autopsying a body, it's great to be able to run back and look at his cute face.
ON WHAT'S MISSING IN HER LIFE Movies. I tried to see Lost in Translation with Marco, but he woke up and I had to leave the theater. It's tough, but hey, he's going to grow up soon, so I better appreciate it now.
