Missy Peregrym of 'Rookie Blue' Doesn't Want to Be Famous

You never know when a simple statemetn can lead down an interesting path in an interview. When Missy Peregrym, who stars in the new ABC summer cop show 'Rookie Blue,' called me directly to do our interview last week, I told her that I was a bit surprised she didn't go through a publicist, like the vast majority of the people I interview choose to do.

She joked that she'll do that when she's "really famous" then said she was kidding. Then she told me that in reality, "I just don't want to be famous. I feel like there's a lot of sacrifice in that I'm not really willing to make."

What follows is a refreshingly honest interview from the down-to-earth Peregrym, who grew up in British Columbia being taught always to be herself by her parents (her father is a minister). The lesson has helped her since a modeling career led her to Hollywood eight years ago, and she landed the starring role in the short-lived WB series 'Black Sash.'
