Swit also noted that the entire cast easily bonded with each other.

Wayne [Rogers] and I would always say, ‘We got intimate quickly,"” Swit told the outlet. “We shot a sort of summer show in the winter. At five in the morning, you’re up in the mountains in California, and it is very, very cold. And Wayne would be wearing one of those Hawaiian shirts the guys wore. He’d be turning blue. So we’d put a blanket around us and all huddle together on breaks.

Swit said she and the other surviving cast mates have stayed closely connected over the years.

We’re family,” ella dijo. “I have loved every minute of my career. I love what I do. I also love reaching out and helping people. Soy [además] very proud of my paintings. I’m not sure that’s an achievement. I do sell them, and the money goes into my charity to help animals.

De nuevo en 2020, Swit told Fox News that her experience working at Ground Zero after September 11 izquierda “my faith intact and invulnerableduring tough times.

“[yo recuerdo] outside of Javits Center were booths with cooking facilities backed by trucks and wagons that had come to New York City from all across the country,” she reflected. “We served burgers, barbecue, coffee and soda. The line was endless, each shift replacing the next. Inside the center, a shift was lying down, resting, sleeping, gearing up for the next bout. The cooking, feeding and rest periods never stopped. It was a seamless line of dedicated, caring people.

We brought hot coffee over to Ground Zero, wearing gas masks and a slew of IDs hanging around our necks,” ella continuó. “Parts of the building that still stood were being pulled down. The dust clouds in the air were a fog. We would burn our clothes whenever the day finished, usually early morning hours, fatigue and adrenaline working with and against the other.

“[Pero] I’ll never forget those people — ever. I saw how we pulled together into one strong, resilient family. I remember a newspaper headline in Paris read, ‘Today We Are All Americans.’ Well today, we are all family.
