|This image beautifully captures the character of Detective Grace Hanadarko
The Violent Crimes Unit is filled with unruly cops, all of whom are either having sex with Grace, will have sex with Grace, or want to have sex with Grace. For Hunter this is a great role, a vehicle for her acting chops and she inhabits the character effortlessly and with total conviction. She has a distinctive way of speaking, as if she is whistling through the side of her mouth. I don't think this is an affectation. It may be more of a symptom, but that's none of my business. It doesn't harm Hunter's effectiveness.
