Gilsig has landed several starring roles on the small screen, including U.S. TV dramas Nip/Tuck and Boston Public, and hit comedy Glee - but confesses her acting career isn't keeping her busy enough.
The 37 year old has now found a way to make extra money, by taking orders and passing hors d'oeuvres around when she's not on set.
She explains, "I just waited tables for the first time last week (begs26Oct09). I took a catering job. I'd never done it and I really like to be busy, so I did. It's fascinating. People are so rude."
