"Napoleon Dynamite" was a key transitional point in Tina Majorino's career, ending a hiatus between her time as as the child star of "Andre" and "Waterworld" and her later, young adult work on "Veronica Mars," "Big Love" and "Bones."
 
Majorino is returning to the world of "Napoleon Dynamite" this spring in FOX animated form, as viewers are reintroduced to her liger-loving Deb.
 
Check out my interview -- conducted in September, along with most of these pesky FOX video interviews -- with Majorino, which touched on the cast's then-recent visit to San Diego's Comic-Con, the influence of comedy veteran Mike Scully on the series and how Deb has changed in her animated incarnation.
 
"Napoleon Dynamite" premieres on FOX on Sunday, Jan. 15.
