Interviewer: How do you feel knowing that you’re the inspiration for a character like Kate Beckett? She’s a strong woman, working in a men’s job that has made her way in that world. What was your reaction when Andrew told you about creating a show like Castle?
Terri: Super flattered. I love the way I look through Andrew’s eyes. I am honored that he considers me his muse, AND, he is mine. When I read his pilot for Castle, I was blown away, and the most romantic part is, when the pilot got picked up, he told me he wanted us to make the show together. He says I bring the “sparks.” (x)
Andrew: It’s a tough scene (the interrogation room in 1x01 btwn Kate & Rick), because we’ re trying to establish both characters. We’re also trying to establish an element of antagonism, and sparks here. - Andrew Marlowe 1x01 Castle commentary
