Factoid: The character of Lilith was written out of “Cheers” at her request, so that she could focus on feature film work.

Quote: “I don’t like to be called Lilith on the street; I’ll actually ignore someone who does that, unless I feel they might hurt me. I don’t like to be recognized. And I’ll say ‘no’ if people ask, ‘are you…?’ — especially if it’s going to cause a scene or somebody is trying to win a bet. It can be completely dehumanizing, and I’m way too sensitive.” [Time Out New York – November 7, 1996]
