So, it’sweird because the way people reacted made me question more than I did. It’s a great role but not just because she’s a woman. That’s how simple it was to me. But otherswere like this is a big deal, clearly. But it’s exciting to be a part of that. And I’m like, let’s continue. This is how it should be.”
