What inspired you to become a performer?
Even though I was a very shy child, I always knew I wanted to perform. I love telling stories, making music, and moving people. The feeling you get with an audience is intoxicating, whether it's in front of them on stage or on the screen; they can laugh, cry, gasp, clap, sing-along, etc., and it all feels like magic. It's something I want to do for the rest of my life.
What would your dream role be?
A remarkable drama that delves into the human condition and makes people think/starts important conversations. Or a kickass superhero. Or a dark comedy that's funny as hell and shockingly moving. (I have a lot of dream roles!)
Since everyone is Bingewatching tv right now, are there any shows that you would recommend?
Fleabag is amazing.
What have you been doing to pass the time during this pandemic?
There have been Open Calls with big-name casting directors from all over the country since March, I've been submitting auditions to as many as I can! Also, keeping creative by making my own content (Quarantine Games) and using my video editing skills. Reading, doing a LOT more yoga, and really enjoying the quality time I'm getting with my husband.
What's the first thing you want to do when this is all over? Hug my mom.
