Alcatraz: Sarah Jones Talks the New Series & Her Character's Journey

Back in October, we had the opportunity to chat with Alcatraz actress Sarah Jones during a visit to the show's Vancouver set.  Alcatraz is the newest drama from producer J.J. Abrams and will be premiering on Fox on Monday, January 16.  Jones took some time away from filming to talk to a group of writers about how she's enjoying the show and the transformation her character will go through as she's pulled into the strange world related to Alcatraz.
