For Elaine Miles
, the role of Rondella Roubaix in Skins
offered a chance to move beyond the naïve sweetness that made her a running favorite on CBS' Northern Exposure
. "Rondella has real attitude and a gutter mouth. That's very different than 'Marilyn,' so I got to break out a little."
She also sees Skins as an important step forward for Native filmmakers in the U.S. "In Canada, they have Indian directors and writers on their weekly television series. Here in the states, we're still trying to get a foot in the door and keep it there."
