You have to really concentrate on piano or acting. You can't do both.
Acting is magical. Change your look and your attitude, and you can be anyone.
Redheads get so stereotyped. You're either exotic and wild or totally Victorian.
Pianos tend to get better as they age, the more you play them. They grow into their sound.
My goal is to just keep playing roles that are different from the roles I've played before.
It occured to me the other day that I've made out with more people on camera than I have in real life!
I went to national piano competitions and did that whole circuit. Then I played professionally to support myself when I moved out to LA.
I'd never been to a prom, I had never had the whole high school experience. I think I was kind of an anomaly. I don't think they knew where to put me.
All of those art-based fields are similar in that they're all hard to make a living in and they all require an intense amount of training and discipline.
I compose my own stuff. I've been writing songs with words. I've been playing more on the keyboard because I can transpose it to sheet music on the computer.
