As we informed you earlier, Jennifer joined the series for its 10th year as Kate Callahan, an accomplished agent who becomes the newest member of David Rossi’s (Joe Mantegna) Behavioral Analysis Unit team in CBS’ ‘Criminal Minds’.
Jen told Zap2i ,”This is totally a different thing than I’ve ever done before — and one of the first projects I haven’t also been a producer on, putting it together from the word ‘go’ and shouldering all that responsibility. It’s sort of nice to be able to go to someone else’s house as a guest and play by their rules.”
“When I got the call, I was in my sweatpants,” Hewitt tells me, “with no makeup, making stuffed bell peppers in my kitchen, where I’ve been for a while post-baby.”
Hewitt also talks about how she was “not prepared” to return to work so soon, and how life has changed as a mother to her 10-month-old daughter, Autumn James Hallisay.
“I’m definitely sort of flying by the seat of my pants,” she told me.”You know, you’re a mom and everything form the moment they’re in your arms is flying by the seat of your pants. So you get very good at it very quickly..[Autumn] is being really brave and I’m being brave and we’re just sort of figuring it out.”
