Munn set out on a journalism career, but wasn’t happy with her job at NBC. She recalls listening to the police scanner and making the decision to leave for Los Angeles. Nowadays, she works as an actress playing the part of a journalist on “The Newsroom.” Of her character Sloan, Munn says she wants viewers to judge her character right off the bat.
“I don’t want Sloan to flaunt her sexuality, but I want her to embrace it and to feel comfortable with herself,” she said. “And I want the audience to judge her when they see her, but then as soon as she starts talking and you hear those Aaron Sorkin lines come out—and if I play it strong, and thoughtful—maybe they’ll judge themselves for judging her.”
