The first time Oprah saw Geena playing the president on television, she got chills. And the first time Geena entered the "Oval Office" as president, she also got chills.

"It's embarrassing to say that I got chills," Geena says. "Not about myself, but about the possibility that someday this will happen. A woman will do this exact thing that I'm doing, and it will be overwhelming. Whenever it happens, it's going to be big."
