KaDee Strickland tells HollywoodLife.com how her character’s storyline on Private Practice has changed her real life and her mission!

HollywoodLife.com‘s Kirstin Benson caught up with the beautiful KaDee Strickland at John Varvatos‘ 8th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood March 13, who told us how playing a rape victim on Private Practice has inspired her to make real life changes.

“It’s been life altering. I’ve been to Capitol Hill and I’m going back. I’m working on the SAFER Act,” KaDee, 35,  said. “When you feel like you’ve done something that allows someone to feel like they’ve been helped, it’s the best feeling in the world.”

We love meeting actors with a positive message. Charlotte’s rape storyline was one of the most heart-wrenching and memorable plots on TV all season — it’s refreshing to hear it’s translated into good things in the real world too.

Watch the video to  hear KaDee talk about her passion for charity work and also great spoilers on Private Practice this season!
