“I was going to do whatever it takes. I spent three years in a conservatory. Spent a lot of money, did a lot of training. I knew that this was not like, oh, what’s plan B?”

“I left the room feeling very exhilarated, because Hoffman took the time to really work with me, and pushed me and knew that I had the talent, but he was trying to push me through my little tricks.”

“It may take you ten to fifteen years before you start working…and he was pretty much right.”

“I don’t doubt the way I approach the work. I don’t second guess it like I did all those years, trying to figure it out, and please the teacher.”

“I think actors really want to be validated and seen for who they are, and when we don’t get that in life we try to put it into our art, our craft.”
