Helgenberger is best known for her role in â€œCSI: Crime Scene Investigationâ€ where she is approaching her 200th episode as Catherine Willows, the seriesâ€™ female lead.
The two actors took some time to answer a few brief questions during their recording sessions for â€œWonder Woman.â€ Hereâ€™s what they had to say:
QUESTION: Youâ€™ve played a number of interesting roles, but whatâ€™s your take on voicing a god?
MARG HELGENBERGER: Well, as the saying goes, behind every great man is an even greater woman. I guess playing Hera means that Iâ€™m, well, not only Queen of the Gods, Iâ€™m better than he is! [she laughs]

Alfred Molina took some time from his busy work schedule to answer some “Wonder Woman” questions:
QUESTION: Alfred Molina voicing Are, the God of War. That’s a nice title.
