Years ago, Carrie Preston penned a list of goals for her future self: among them, to be an actress. With that item now ticked, the star of TNT’s Claws (season 2 premieres June 10 at 9 p.m.) reveals she still carries the list “to remind me of who I was.”

Preston, 50, wed to actor Michael Emerson, tells Us more.

“[Costar] Karrueche Tran, who we’re all smitten with, gave us sunglasses from Privé Revaux that we got to pick out. Mine have lattice work on the sides.”
