Susan Brown asks:
Here is what Texas preacher’s wife Susan Brown asked: “I always wondered what the real angels think of how they are portrayed. Did you ever think about that? What did the real angels think of the way you portrayed them?
“Well,” answered Downey, “I could only hope that – as I prayerfully prepared for that role that I could awaken the best aspects of myself, my kindness, my empathy and my compassion. I tried to learn to listen with my heart and not just with my ears. I can’t presume to know how the real angels are, but I would like to think that they listen and are guiding lights and that they’re loving and that they heal and hear us through their hearts. That was what I tried to bring to my portrayal of Monica. Indeed, it’s something I’ve tried to continue to bring into my life as a friend and as a wife and a parent.”
