Screening Room: Is there one piece of advice you've been given that has stuck with you?

Sharon Gless: It was something my mother taught me—to always have compassion. It helps as a human being. It helps me as an actor, and I like to believe that I do have that ability, to be compassionate of others. It gives you an understanding of someone else besides yourself.
