MAKING A SCENE: Sharing stage time with Glen Campbell.
Patterson stars alongside an all-star cast in the Patrick Brown comedy-drama Ladies of the Night, playing a hooker laden with spark and sass. We checked in with her about the sport of her childhood, her must-have for airplane comfort, and the role that moved her to tears.
That would have to be singing with Sinead O'Connor on her "Throw Down Your Arms" tour, alongside Sly & Robbie in 2005. We did shows in the US, Canada, Europe... And I also got to perform with her on the Jay Leno and David Letterman Shows.
Made Her Cry
The first emotional (acting) role I did was in Once on this Island at Centrestage in 2000. It was very emotional. I didn't win but I got nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
Sport of Choice
Definitely badminton. I grew up playing at home and while I was a student at Stella Maris Prep. We didn't play outside of school, but we had a lot of fun.
My sleep mask. I can't live without it, generally. But I got to have it whenever I'm travelling.
For sure, I do a lot of warming up physically and vocally. That's the way to keep in tip-top shape, especially when you really want to put on a show.
