Amanda Knox interview on 'GMA': 'This is wrong'

"Good Morning America" had the big interview of the day Friday morning: Robin Roberts and Amanda Knox, talking about Thursday's murder conviction. Knox did her first live TV interview with Roberts last May, which preceded a Diane Sawyer special.

Last May, Knox was promoting her memoir, "Waiting to Be Heard," and at that time told Roberts, “I had to learn how to deal with it as I went through it. I was 20. I was in this foreign country. I barely spoke the language. And my friend was murdered.”

Friday morning's interview was certainly a sharp departure, in tone, demeanor and obviously context. Her voice quavering, her hair short, and her attitude defiant, here are just a few pull-quotes: "My first reaction was 'no' and 'this is wrong,' and I'm going to do everything I can to prove that it is and I felt very determined and my family felt very determined. But it was only on my way here that I got my first cry... This really has hit me like a train. I did not expect this to happen. I really expected so much better from the Italian justice system. They found me innocent before. How can they say it's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt."

"I'm going to fight this until the very end. And it's not right and it's not fair. And I'm going to do everything I can." And this: She said she would not return "willingly" back to Italy.

Here's the interview, for those who missed (app readers, watch here: Unfortunately, this content is unavailable on mobile phones):
