Women Fitness President talks to the stunning actress about her journey to success.
To begin with, acting was not your choice of profession but one suggested to you by your mother. What were the factors that lead you to enter the entertainment industry?
My mother would have preferred a job with more security, I’m sure! Although she’s very supportive of everything I do. I lived my way into this business. I kept saying yes to opportunities that came along. I learned everything I could, whenever I could. It was exciting, there was a feeling of possibility. Then I found community. We all want to be seen for who we really are and I found that among actors and creators. People that share a feeling, a perspective on living, all in one place. We all kind of gravitate to what suits us best. This is where I belong, among the misfits.
