Quotes

  • [on Della Reese]: One of the most loving and remarkable gifts it gave to me is my relationship with Della Reese [Tess] which, even though we’ve been off the air for a few years, continues with great love and friendship. She’s the mother I lost when I was 10 and I’m the daughter she lost while we were filming. We have adopted each other. She is just a remarkable woman and she brings so much joy not just my life but to the length of my entire family.
  • [When she wanted to know if Della Reese, who played Tess, would also be a surrogate mother to her on Touched by an Angel (1994), long before Della becomes a godmother to Reilly in real-life]: When we met, it was like Della had been given to me as a mother. What you see on the screen is echoed off the screen. It’s a very loving relationship. It was instant. The moment we met there was something – a recognition of souls, like we had known each other. She has given me great counsel. There is no safer place in the world than in the arms of Della. Reilly adores her. Of course, she spoils her rotten. Last Christmas, she gave her a violin and lessons. I told you she spoils Reilly.
  • [on her on- and off-screen relationship with gospel singer, actress and evangelist Della Reese, who played Tess]: She has adopted me, and is my mother to this day. My mom died when I was a girl, and her daughter passed away toward the end of the run. She said she always knew God brought her into my life because I needed a mother. What she hadn’t realized was that God brought me into her life because she was going to need a daughter. She asked me if I would be her daughter and I said I would, and she said, “Then I am your mother.” I live here in Malibu and she’s in Beverly Hills and we get together every few weeks. She comes to grandparents’ days at the kids’ school and it’s a beautiful relationship, another legacy of love. I’m so grateful to the show for that. It gave me a beautiful mother in my life. My mom died when I was 10, and I was so impacted by that, as you can imagine. Often I would find myself in the company of older women fantasizing and longing, dreaming for that maternal nurturing. When Della and I met that first day on the set, it was like we’d known each other forever, yet we couldn’t have been more different. I was raised a young white child in Northern Island, and here she was this sort of larger than life black woman from Detroit. Yet our souls connected and really, the joy we brought to each other has really been beautiful. When I see reruns of the series and that relationship, I realize there were many ingredients that were part of the show’s success. And yet that relationship reflected on-screen what we felt off-screen, and was a great part of the chemistry.
  • [on the charitable organization that she participated – Operation Smile]: I’ve been on multiple international missions with them, and in fact Mark and I last spring took our three children to Jordan, and it was a fantastic experience for all of us. We went knowing we would help change the lives of children, but when we came home, really, it was our lives that had been changed!
  • I have the soul of a singer and do splendidly in the shower, but the world will never hear it. Basically, I’m the only Irish person who can’t carry a tune.
  • [on starring in a TV movie with John Schneider]: I’m reunited with John Schneider – tall John! It was nice. It worked so out well. It was great to be back on set, although I think the second or third night, after crawling into bed from a very long day and a lot sitting around and waiting, I remember calling Mark very late at night and us laughing about it and going, ‘Why did I want to do this again? Would you please remind me?
  • [When asked about how she felt about turning 40… She said]: For me, it’s a milestone age. I’m at a great place in my life. I have exceeded my own expectations in terms of what I wanted to accomplish by this time – I am a mother, a successful working actress, a producer, and an author.
  • One of the reasons I haven’t been going off on location is because I am the queen of the carpool!
