One day I’m not busy at all; the next day I have work for months – that’s kind of the way it works!
I’m a songwriter and I’d love to make that a part of my career.
I wasn’t even a theater kid in high school. I studied classical piano, and I ran track.
You know how there’s always the one girl in drama school who can cry at the drop of a hat? She has that emotional well she can tap into in a second? I’m not that girl. It takes a lot to get me to that place.
William Shakespeare was a brilliant writer and he only wrote the truth. So, if I don’t believe it, I have to work really hard to see what that truth is so that I do; that’s the only way I can make it believable for the audience.
I really want to do film, but I want to do the right film. The truth for me is that I’m really driven by stories. So there are stories I want to tell, and if it’s a good story then I want to do it, whatever genre it is.
I prefer theater and film. I did a little television, and obviously I’m not knocking it. It can be great, and it does pay the bills. But it’s a little bit more disjointed.
I admire fashion and I respect it greatly, but I don’t necessarily follow trends. I never really have. I just wear what I like to wear. I really like colors, and there are some things I wear and don’t care what anybody says about it being in style or not. I wear it anyway.
The way I work emotionally is: I don’t ever try to cry. I try not to, which is what for me produces organic emotion.
Shakespeare teaches you how to act. You come out of this process as a better actor. It’s just the nature of the words he writes.
I started playing piano when I was around four; that’s my first passion.
If I see something that’s extremely challenging, I’m like, ‘That seems really hard. Let’s try it.’ It’s just my personality.
Theater is a lot more interactive, more of a cohesive unit. With television, it can be a different director every episode.
The reason why I like theater is because it’s a long journey, and no matter what role you play, we are all in it together.
