1) Why did you start acting? or Why did you get into film?
Getting into acting was a bit of a fluke. I actually wanted to be a dancer. My mom asked me one time when I was dancing in a play if I wanted to audition for a speaking role to which I rolled my eyes and said. “Ugh no that’s stupid.” I think I was 8. When I was going into 9th grade my mom needed to get me out of her hair for the summer so she signed me up for a two or three week workshop at our community theater. I guess you could say it sucked me in because I never stopped after that.
I’m very taken with Helen Mirren and Shirley MacLaine as well as Scarlett Johanssen and Jennifer Lawerence.
I decided to audition on a whim. I never anticipated being considered for the role of Jules, but after I read the script I really wanted it. I think that I have lived through most of both Jules and Jason’s experiences. I guess I feel more compelled to tell that story because it is so like my own. It is hard to say what I am most excited about in this film, so I will just say being apart of it.
