• Her character, Sara Tancredi, was presumed dead last season—but the 31-year-old actress and new mom (to Keala, 1) is back in action on the FOX drama.

WHAT DID YOU DO IN YOUR TIME OFF?
I've written my own pilot. I had the baby. I'm reading War and Peace, if you can possibly say that without having to punch me in the face for sounding pretentious. Those are the highlights.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE RETURNING TO THE CHARACTER?
It was a little bit like trying on a pair of jeans that fit you four years ago.

WAS THE CAST WELCOMING?
You mean did anybody show up and say, "I wish you'd stayed dead"? [Laughs] No, everyone was great. Pretty much the first word out of everybody's mouth was, "Hi, nice to see you. Where's the baby?!"
