I don't think I'm a follower, frankly.
I like to make collages - paper collages.
I'm actually developing a project so that I can have a lead.
Even befor doing this film, I've always been interested in mythology.
If you're fortunate enough, you get to a position where you can be a little pickier about your roles.
Which is not to discount everything I've done in my past; everything I have learned tremendously from.
In the end, I play a lot of friends and I really think it's about time that some ethnic girls get out there in the lead part. So we're developing something.
Editing is a natural extension of the collage making. It's actually one of the few areas that women were able to excel in in the film industry from the beginning.
For six months I'd do movies and make it all about me. Then the other six months, it's not about me and it doesn't matter what my hair looks like or what anything looks like.
So now I feel I'm lucky in the respect that I can sort of pick a little more carefully, which is tricky because as a black actress, there aren't that many roles to pick from.
