On her decision to attend the University of Washington and study political science before concentrating on an acting career, Jane Adams told the London Evening Standard (April 19. 1999): "I wanted to be a normal person. It scared me--the whole idea of being an actor for the rest of my life. I thought, 'Please, let me just be one of the masses.'"

"'Relativity' ... was a great learning experience, just to be in front of the camera every day no matter how you're feeling, no matter what's going on, and to learn it's not something to fret about. That show was unique. Most casts aren't friendly. We became each other's lives." --Adams on working on the ABC series, "Relativity" in conversation with co-star Poppy Montgomery, quoted in Interview, April 1999.

Playwright Paul Rudnick, in whose 1981 Broadway play "I Hate Hamlet" Adams appeared, described the actress as "one of those magnificient waifs who can make fragility seem magical and demented at the same time." --From The New York Times, October 11, 1998
