From Show Choir to Ballsy Mediator: Meet Fairly Legal's Sarah Shahi

Fairly Legal creator and executive producer Michael Sardo remembers exactly when he realized he had found his leading lady. "I had seen 90 women when Sarah Shahi came in. When the casting director pulled out a pretend gun in the audition scene, they all backed up," Sardo tells  "Sarah's audition started, the casting director pulled out the fake gun, and she leaned in . Right then and there, I knew she was Kate." Fearlessness was an important prerequisite for the role of mediator Kate Reed, the center of USA's new drama, Fairly Legal.

We were there when star Sarah answered questions about what makes Kate so interesting–both to play and to watch, why Kate dislikes her stepmother so much, and what Kate’s romantic life might hold.
