A self-described "hippie," Nicole Beharie tells Us Weekly that she never goes far without dried mulberries for snacking and chlorella to pour into her water. "It's algae -- not sexy, but very healthy," says the 29-year-old single actress, who plays tough-talking detective Abbie Mills on Fox's Sleepy Hollow (Mondays, 9 P.M.). What else is she packing?

Kiss and Tell

"My favorite thing in my purse is C.O. Bigelow's Mentha gloss. The flavor kind of tingles on your lips and tastes like mint. Everyone thinks it's delicious. 

Stretching the Limits

"I have an insane schedule, but you have to make time to take care of yourself. I bring a tension band with me and Bose headphones for listening to workout music."

Book Smart 

"I'm reading the novel Americanah by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It's a good, old-fashioned hardcover. In other words: heavy!" 

Her Hat Trick 

"Just in case of rain, I keep a baseball cap handy. Sometimes my hair decides it's going to do its own thing." 


"I don't have a proper wallet; I'm a girl with a money clip. I think Abbie would approve of that. Carrying a money clip is very Abbie."
