"Anna’s good for me because I’m very shy and she’s not – she’s really outgoing, she’s got a lot of friends, and she’s great at getting me out and having fun. It’s very much like our characters -Chuck and Ned's - relationship on the show; she wakes him up and gets him doing stuff. She’s a pleasure to fall in love with on screen." -Lee Pace about Anna Friel
