Rossum discusses her career, including her role on the Showtime drama Shameless and new CD, Sentimental Journey, in this interview for PBS. On her love of both music and acting:
I listened to all kinds of jazz piano and classical music in my house growing up and I love music, but I just love the – I like playing pretend. I like being on stage and the costumes and the element of imagination that came into getting transported into another time. So I think for me, I always thought first I’d go onto Broadway, but I ended up going out for films and getting some indies and yeah.
