Archie Panjabi On The Magic Of Kalinda's 'Good Wife' Boots (VIDEO)

Never underestimate the power of Kalinda's "The Good Wife" boots. In an interview on HuffPost Live, Archie Panjabi discussed the power of those fan-favorite boots and how they help her get into character.

"As soon as I put on her boots, or a piece of outfit that is hers, I totally change. Everything about me just changes ... I try and get myself totally in the scene," Panjabi said.

Panjabi also teased what's ahead with her "Good Wife" character: Hint, it's a new love. Juliet Rylance will recur as Holly, Kalinda's new flame.

"She's somebody who Kalinda's had a relationship with and maybe looking to rekindle it," Panjabi said.
