Allison Janney Says 'West Wing' Took Over Her Life


Allison Janney


The Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg of 'The West Wing' was glad after the long-running drama ended in 2006 since she spent most of her time on the series' set.

Allison Janney felt "adrift" when long-running drama "The West Wing" ended - because the hit show had taken over her life. The actress, who played press secretary C.J. in the White House-based series, worked 18-hour days and rarely had time to socialize with pals.

And when the show eventually ended its seven-year run in 2006, Janney realized how much of life she had missed out on. She tells the U.K.'s Sunday Express, "It was relentless. We did 18-hour days - and we were so happy to be where we were."

"But as the years went by, we started to be less happy. There are so many things I missed out on in my friends' lives. When it ended, I felt kind of adrift because I slept, ate and breathed 'West Wing'. I really didn't have too much else to define who I was."
