Model Prisoner

Only diehard Sarah Wayne Callies fans recall her as Kate O’Malley on TV’s quick-to-vanish Queens Supreme, or her starring role as Detective Jane Porter on The WB’s update of Tarzan. Pretty much everyone who’s heard of the comely brunette knows her from her stint on FOX’s Prison Break and the subsequent outcry from fans when Callies briefly left the show.

When she speaks about the entrepreneurial facets of an actor’s life at ASU on Monday, May 4, Callies will almost certainly talk about juggling a hit series and a private life (she’s married and has a child). But here’s hoping she also addresses the joys of a fan following that boycotts a show until you return to it.
