Annaleigh Ashford talks with Out about playing Betty on Masters of Sex and shared this tidbit:

You can’t choose who you love. And playing Betty the last couple of years, it has been such an incredible opportunity because how far we’ve come in the last few years. The morning that marriage equality was passed, Sarah and I were filming a scene together that day and my husband was in town. We were so happy, we cried. Then filming a scene about two women trying to have a baby together in 1966, which sounds impossible at that time. Now it’s possible! It’s now possible for two women to say, “Yeah, we’re getting married.” And everyone goes, “OK, great, we’ll see you there.” It’s unbelievable. It’s a miracle! There’s always more work to be done but, my god, what a beautiful opportunity our children will have to love who they want.
