Though Laird accompanied her, Sharon was also seen posing on the red carpet with co-stars Carolyn Stotesbery, Gerald McRaney, Olga Fonda, John Shea, and Jeff Hephner.
Stone is playing the first female vice president in the show, and told Renee what she hopes Vice President Biden will think of the role. "You know, I really like Vice President Biden as a person and as a vice president, and I hope that he feels that I, in any way, am doing anything that is in any way helpful to this campaign."
She is also willing to help current Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, saying, "Nothing would please me more than to be more and more participatory in anything Mrs. Clinton might ask me to do."
Switching gears from professional to personal, the actress, who is single at the moment, revealed what she is looking for in a man. "I really like manners. I like when people are polite and confident in themselves and have their own thing going on… act like you know who you are."
