SheKnows sat down with the star on the eve November sweeps and Procter promised a CSI: Miami month to remember.
Procter was born in North Carolina and her Southern Belle accent is hard to miss. She's unassuming, glamorous and immensely talented. Her film resume includes Leaving Las Vegas with Nicolas Cage and Jerry Maguire alongside Tom Cruise. There is an unspoken charm to Procter that lingers long after the interview concluded.
Her work on television has made her a household name. Procter answers all our CSI: Miami and West Wing questions as well as letting us in on the secrets to staying stunning under the Miami heat.
Emily Procter: It is so nice of you to say that.
SheKnows: It's been great to watch your career over the years. To see you finding such success in such varied characters. For you, has that been the key to your success and longevity?
Emily Procter: You know, the entertainment business is so odd. I've always say that more often than not, it's not what people are capable of doing, but what people allow one to do. I feel like I have hit the lottery twice with West Wing and CSI: Miami because they are both such different women. But, they are both such strong women. That has been a tremendous joy. And sprinkled here and there I've been other fun, challenging things. I loved Breast Men.
SheKnows: Yes, with David Schwimmer. That's a good movie!
Emily Procter: Yeah, that was great. Even in really small parts over the years that have me with people who have such an artistic way of looking at things - I feel that I have been really lucky. Who knows how that happens (laughs)?
Emily Procter: We spend about a quarter of the time there. It's sort of become this thing where we all want to go and they don't want us to go because I don't think we're professional enough when we're in Miami (laughs).
SheKnows: It is a fun town.
Emily Procter: (laughs) Oh, my gosh yes.
SheKnows: I wondered because Miami is known for its heat. And you just look so gorgeous day in and day out, is there any secrets to that?
Emily Procter: Yes, it's a SWAT Team of beauty - people with aerosol misters and hair brushes and lip liners. I always say to the hair people, 'just one day I'd like to wake up and already have you people in my bathroom.'
Emily Procter: I hope so too. I'm excited for November 4.
SheKnows: Well happy Election Day to you. It'll be a fourth to remember.
Emily Procter: I'm going to quote you on that. I really will!
