QUOTES:

“If you’re not happy and things aren’t working for you, you have to change something no matter how small.”

“The first thing I usually think about [preparing for an audition] is to look at the exact opposite of whatever is written… seeing the opposite helps to highlight what’s sitting on the surface.”

“The only reason you’ll ever really get cast in something is because you’re you… because of what you felt in the moment or what’s going on with you that managed to shine through the cloud.”
