The 'I, Tonya' actress portrayed C.J. Cregg in the NBC series and she is hoping speculation creator Aaron Sorkin has been considering how he could reboot the programme will lead to its return.

When asked if she would be interested in appearing in the series again, she replied: "Yes, of course. Are you kidding me? That was one of my favourite things that I've ever done.

"Those are some of my favourite people on this planet, that I got to work with on that show. I would jump at the chance to do that. Maybe as a limited series.

"I don't know what we could do, but I'm in. If Aaron is in, I'm in. I'll just wait until he writes it, but I'm in."

The 58-year-old star believes there has "never been a better time" for 'The West Wing' to return to the small screen than now.

She added to Collider: "I hope he really does do it. There's never been a better time than right now."

Allison tasted plenty of success while in 'The West Wing', including winning four Emmys after being nominated six times.

She's received seven Emmys in total as well as six Screen Actors Guild Awards and five Critics Choice Awards.

Allison's latest role sees her star as figure skater Tonya Harding's mother, LaVona Fay Golden, and comes after she grew up wanting to be a pro figure skater like her on-screen daughter - who is played by Margot Robbie - but her dreams were dashed when she ran through a glass door in her teens.

She previously said: "Well, I hit it, and then the glass fell on top of me, so it sort of guillotined my leg.

"It was bad - I lost an artery, cut tendons. It was a bad accident."
