Bad Dates  Curtain Calls

Haneefah WoodName: Haneefah Wood

Role: Haley Walker

What is your hometown? Washington, DC

Previously seen in: Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

What's the best piece of dating/relationship advice you've ever received? Be yourself. Don't send your representative. If you don't cook, don't start now.

What are the most important (or your favorite) shoes in your closet? I actually don't have a favorite pair of shoes. But one of the fanciest pairs I have is a pair of Alexander McQueen black leather booties that my mom bought for me.

What's the best date you've ever been on? The first date of my current relationship. That date lasted longer than twelve hours. We went to the beach, rode bicycles, watched the sun set while listening to our favorite songs, went to the movies and then we just sat in the car listening to music and making out until 2 in the morning. It was heaven.

What advice would you give your character Haley Walker? I don't think I would give her any advice. Here's a woman who is smart and resourceful and is doing the best she can as a single parent. She loves her daughter and takes good care of her. She does some things that are questionable but she tells the truth about it. We can't all be perfect. I think she's doing pretty well for herself.

Do you have a favorite or most memorable Boston restaurant? If so, why? I cooked most of my meals when I was in Boston last. BUT, I love a chain restaurant every now and then. Pizzeria Uno's was my place to go.

 

Jessica StoneName: Jessica Stone

Role: Director

Hometown: Rochester, New York

Previous Huntington credits: Director of Ripcord and Vonya and Sonia and Masha and Spike; appeared in She Loves Me, Betty's Summer Vacation, and Springtime for Henry

What's the best piece of dating/relationship advice you've ever received? Don't date anyone who doesn't make you laugh.

What are the most important (or your favorite) shoes in your closet?
I wish I could say my sexy Louboutin something or others. But it's my sneaks that have arch support and accommodate bunions. I'm clearly not a fun date.

What's the best date you've ever been on? My first date with my (now) husband. It wasn't a date. We had just finished working together on a show and were out with the cast for a closing night dinner. We started holding hands under the table and now nearly 20 years later, I'm listening to him repair a piece of furniture in our bedroom as I type this.

What advice would you give the character of Haley Walker? I would tell her to remember not to let her daughter look at a screen for too long. And to take a longer look at the bug guy.

Do you have a favorite or most memorable Boston restaurant? If so, why? Figs. I've spent many an hour there with really close friends and it holds a special place in my heart.
