I've just been really lucky to not be too much of a stereotype.
You express different energies at different times in your life.
I was exposed to the arts, but there was no one in my family who was an artist.
I don't prefer much of film over stage. The only thing I prefer is the paycheck.
With acting, it was really more of a general kind of experience of really just loving being in the theater.
You have your structure, but within it, it gets fuller and you can highlight other parts of the performance.
I really don't like when things are all polished and perfect - the perfect love story and the hair is perfect.
I am really not of the school of naturalism. I like style, and you can use more style in theater than in film roles. I love to sink my teeth into a part.
Politics itself is so unsexy, isn't it? But when the politics in creative works are really explored - not used as a vehicle - the results can be really interesting.
I grew up on musicals, and I know they are quite the thing now, but I'm actually a little indignant, because I started taking singing lessons years ago - I put the time in!
