Quotes on acting: source

I’m always kind of drawn to characters or stories or people who seem a little bit like they don’t really fit in that much, for all different reason
I’ve always been ridiculously shy and reserved. If I had to do a presentation in school, I’d worry about it for a week beforehand. But if there was a drama class and you had to pretend to be someone else, or perform on stage for whatever reason, I didn’t care if people were looking, I didn’t care about the social anxiety of it all. So, I think for me, it’s always been about escaping, finding different stories, different characters to explore.
