Picks and Pans Review: Spotlight on Rescue Me's ... Callie Thorne

UPDATED 07/03/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/03/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT

Age: 36
Plays: Prurient, potty-mouthed widow Sheila Keefe having a tempestuous on-and-off affair with firefighter Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) on the FX drama.

ON SPARKS BETWEEN SHEILA AND TOMMY
Not only are Denis and I doing love scenes in front of a crew--he's my boss [exec producer]! We're brotherly-sisterly off-camera, which means we have a free-for-all on-camera. I feel safe with him.

ON THE SMOKIN' SET
We all smoke, so you'd think we'd have our lighters. But everyday, people pat themselves going, "Uh, do you have a lighter?" That set would shut down and heads would burst into flames if smoking was banned.

ON DATING, RESCUE ME-STYLE
They're my protective brothers. One date turned into a deaf mute. The boys said, "Give him another chance!" I can't with a guy who lets me drive the bus. They try to set me up and second-guess themselves.
