Personal Quote:

I got my first big paycheck for 'My Best Friend's Wedding.' This was in the days when you actually did get paid to have a supporting role. It just doesn't happen like that anymore, but this was in the '90s. It was the golden age! See more »

Trivia:

Carrie had a recurring role alongside her husband Michael Emerson on the TV show Person of Interest (2011) where they played lovers. See more »
