People will think you're too old." And I was like, why? And when I took Parenthood, people said, "You shouldn't play another mom." That's like saying, oh, you're playing another woman.
Mom isn't an adjective or a personality; they're not all the same. We did an episode of Caroline in the City where he walked on his hands. What's it like to play the sister of someone you're dating?
How did having your father as your primary parent shape you as a person?
He is extremely smart and mellow and positive, just an easy person to be with. As an actor you have to maximize your time, because you don't know what's going to happen in your 50s and 60s and 70s.
We stayed friends over the years, and I've always been a huge fan of his work.

Graham speaks lovingly of both parents (her mother died five years ago), as well as her stepmother, whom her father married when Lauren was in high school.
In her book-filled library, she shows me a framed black-and-white portrait of herself as a baby, being held by her maternal grandmother.
While I very much wanted to be in a relationship, I didn't want to be in the wrong one. Not all of them — that will never end — but I am proud of the things I've done.
